PRISONER REMAKE SHELVED?
Back in November 2005, it was announced that Granada were in talks with SKY One regarding a possible re-make of "The Prisoner" series, written by Bill Gallacher. Although not officially confirmed as yet, rumours have reached The Unmutual Website via a source at Granada that the proposed remake has been temporarily shelved for this year.
Whether this will only be a short-term shelving of a few months, or one of an indefinite nature, only time will tell. We will, of course, be the first to bring you more news when it becomes available.
UPDATE 30/3/06: Rumours have surfaced this week that, if it goes ahead, the proposed re-make will made by an independent company for Granada (and not by Granada themselves). What's more interesting (if true) is that they are looking at shooting it in Wales!
