It looks like Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson will be in a second film together this year. That’s just fine with me, as I don’t really mind looking at either on screen. In addition to Woody Allen’s The Scoop, which hits theaters next week, on July 28th, they will both be seen in The Prestige.
The Prestige is being directed by Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, Memento, Untitled Batman Sequel). The story regards rival magicians (Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman) in turn-of-the-century London who battle for each other’s secrets. The rivalry becomes so intense that it turns them into murderers.
The Prestige also stars Christian Bale, David Bowie, Ezra Buzzington, Michael Caine, Piper Perabo and Andy Serkis, and will be in theaters on October 27, 2006.
