Christopher Nolan (Memento, Batman Begins) starts filming his next film,The Prestige, in January. The screenplay, adapted by Nolan's brother, is based on a novel by Christopher Priest which tells the tale of two rival magicians in Victorian England.
If you read the moviehole article linked above (click on the "The Prestige" link) you will notice that the film has some major comic book movie connections. Both Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale will star in the film.
Comic book geeks though should be careful not to confuse comic book writer Christopher J. Priest with British Science Fiction Giant Christopher Priest.
