After Jim Caviezel, Ian McKellen, and Ruth Wilson, among others, Lennie James, who appeared on the popular but canceled drama Jericho signed up to the AMC remake of the classic 1960s show The Prisoner.

James, 42, who plays Robert Hawkins on Jericho, will play Number 147, a resident of the mysterious Village where a former secret agent, now known as Number 6, who will be played by Caviezel, finds himself imprisoned.  McKellen will play Number 2, the head of the Village and Number 6’s primary antagonist. Wilson will play Number 313, Jamie Campbell Bower is Number 11-12, while Hayley Atwell is also part of the project.

The makers promise the remake to be a “pacy, radical reinvention of the original show.”

Scheduled to air sometime next year, The Prisoner is a six-hour miniseries, which is originally an allegorical British sci-fi show follows a former British secret agent who is held captive in a small village by the sea after he resigns from his position.  His unidentified captor calls him Number Six and tries to establish the reason for his resignation.  Throughout the series, meanwhile, Number Six attempts to escape while defying all attempts to break his will. He also tries to discover for which “side” his captors work and the identity of the mysterious Number One, who presumably runs the Village

AMC is producing The Prisoner with British broadcast ITV, with Bill Gallagher writing.
