The Prestige - New Movie

Hugh Jackman & Christian Bale are going to star in a new movie based on a book called The Prestige by Christopher Priest. Here's a quickie sypnosis:
Two 19th-century stage illusionists, the aristocratic Rupert Angier and the working class Alfred Borden, engage in a bitter and deadly feud; the effects are still being felt by their respective families a hundred years later. Working in the gaslight-and-velvet world of Victorian music halls, both men prowl edgily in the background of each other's shadowy life, driven to the extremes by a deadly combination of obsessive secrecy and insatiable curiosity. At the heart of the row is an amazing illusion they both perform during their stage acts. The secret of the magic is simple (the reader is in on it almost from the start) but to the antagonists the real mystery lies deeper. Both have something more to hide than the mere workings of a trick.
The movie deals with magic which immediately draws my attention and it stars Hugh and Bale, 2 of the HOTTEST stars around! My only regret is that its set in the victorian era so they won't be taking off their shirts. Ah well... this will do until they both decide to star in a Baywatch remake :)
