We haven’t heard much since November, but today Sky One gave more information on the remake of the cult classic The Prisoner. Not much to go on really, but it is to be six parts, written by Bill Gallagher (British TV series Conviction and Clocking Off) and could star former Doctor Christopher Eccleston.
Despite previous words from George Lucas, the original, untweaked versions of the first three Star Wars films will now be released on DVD. They probably won’t go through the whole THX process so they won’t look as good, and they will include a second disk with the updated version as well. They are slated to go on sale September 12th, and I’ve heard conflicting info – the CNN article says they will only be sold through Dec. 31st, but I’ve heard that it is only for the individual movies, and a box set will stay on sale. Maybe I can finally get rid of my tempermental laserdisc player – I had both versions on it.
