ITV to remake ‘The Prisoner’

April 30, 2008

It may not be the first time that this cult series has been rumoured to be remade, but this time there is too much speculation for it to be ignored.

But with so many remakes topping the TV ratings it would seem that whoever remakes this show would have a ready made audience.

ITV have confirmed that they are looking into the prospect of remaking the cult series that was originally filmed in the 1960’s, starred heart throb Patrick McGoohan and was filmed at the highly attractive village of Portmerion, in Wales.

But before fans of the show both past, and hopefully new, get too excited, Sky One was looking into this a couple of years ago and about ten years ago there was even talk of a movie being made.

However fans were disappointed when these failed to materialise.

Should this get beyond the development stage, former Dr Who, Christopher Eccleston is rumoured to play “Number Six”.
