Check out all the latest news and information about The Prisoner remake starring James Caviezel and Ian McKellen.
After some wild speculation last week, a spokesperson for ITV said neither filming nor casting had taken place.
“It’s not so much a second series – we are in development for remaking or re-versioning The Prisoner, that’s true."
“No casting has been confirmed so the names that have been mentioned are pure speculation. Also the suggestion we’re filming in Libya is untrue. We haven’t worked out where we’re going to be filming it at this stage.”
Mr Langley, author of the recent book Patrick McGoohan: Danger Man or Prisoner?, said that as well as a new TV series, film-makers Universal Studios still have a plan to make a film sequel. McGoohan was involved in this several years back when he delivered his own script for a Prisoner movie.
Mr Langley said: “There’s always been two distinctly separate plans. One was to make a film sequel called The Prisoner by Universal Studios. And from the end of 2006, Sky One said they were linking up with Granada to make a mini-series of six episodes.
