AMC's The Prisoner Adds New Inmates

Following the recent announcement of Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen as the stars of AMC's miniseries reimagining of the 1960s series The Prisoner, the network has named a few more actors it plans to lock up.Joining Caviezel's Number Six and McKellen's Number Two (insert childish joke here!) are Golden Globe-nominated actress Ruth Wilson (Jane Eyre, Capturing Mary) as Number 313, Hayley Atwell (Mansfield Park) as Number 41-5, Lennie James (Jericho) as Number 147 and Jamie Campbell-Bower (Sweeney Todd) as Number 11-12. The miniseries is updating the original — an espionage thriller set during the Cold War — to focus on security and surveillance while retaining the franchise's trademark socio-economic commentary. The six-part event is set to debut in 2009. — Adam BryantRelated:• Caviezel, McKellen Locked Up for AMC's The Prisoner• The Joy of 6: A First Look at the Return of The Prisoner• AMC to Set The Prisoner Free in 2008
