Over the years there have been countless rumours regarding a possible movie remake of 'The Prisoner', with many names (such as Christopher Nolan, Mel Gibson, and Patrick McGoohan himself) linked with it since the original series aired in 1967/68 (click HERE for an article about the succession of remake ideas).
