It’s one of the most beloved cult television shows of all time, and it’s about to get a high-profile remake. The Prisoner was a very strange 1960’s cult sci-fi classic starring Patrick McGoohan.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the “Prisoner”, it told the story of a former British secret agent held captive in a mysterious village, as authorities tried to break his will. The trippy storylines often included hallucinations, mind control, and a lot of references to “hooks” and “crooks.”
The 6 part miniseries will be released next year on AMC and will star Jim Caviezel as Number Six and Ian McKellan as the village overseer known as Number Two.
