Prisoner Remake

BOSSES at ITV confirmed last night that Sir Ian McKellen and Jim Caviezel will star in the network's remake of 1960s classic cult thriller, The Prisoner, slated to premiere in 2009.

American actor Caviezel, who appeared in The Passion of the Christ, will take the role of Number Six, while McKellen will appear as Number Two.

The original Prisoner show was filmed in Portmeirion, in North Wales - but ITV was not confirming where the new series will be shot.
