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 Bryant
