THE PRISONER - Remake Back on!
Crikey!

You may remember THIS post back in 2006 where SKY mooted a remake of THE PRISONER. Well that seemed to disappear but it now looks like it's back on. Not only that, it seems I missed THIS particular piece of news (reporting the rebooted remake) which was published in April this year! That's exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for on the flippin' internet! Anyway, there's an even more recent update than that. Go HERE to find out that SIR IAN MCKELLEN will play NO. 2 and JIM CAVIEZEL will play NO. 6 in six one hour episodes. The ITV production (cue groans) starts filming in August and they're are calling it a "pacey, radical reinvention of the original show."

He was meant to be in it back in '06.

'Til the next time,
C.

    It wont be filmed in Portmeirion, it just wont be the same.

    Agreed.

    You've opened your mouth and a great truth has sprung forward.

    They're shooting in Namibia and Cape Town! I mean what? Unless they build a set that is exactly the same then what's the point? The setting was one of the most important elements of the show.

    It would be like DOCTOR WHO without the TARDIS.

    As a positive, the casting (if true) looks suitable.
