Re-reporting the news...The Futon Critic - a fine collector of press releases reports that AMC will air The Prisoner remake as a miniseries. Which makes sense. The had two main questions - "Why is #6 a prisoner of the island and who is #1?" That's all we need to know.
The show always had a finite ending. Otherwise it would become Lost or Twin Peaks.
It will star (Telephone) Jim (Jesus) Caviezel and Ian McKellen. I'm guessing Caviezel is #6 and McKellen will be the sole #2.
The Futon Critic gives McKellen's credits as "Lord of the Rings, The Da Vinci Code." OH! That Ian McKellen!
