tv 'The Saint' remake to star 'Hunted' actor Adam Rayner

3 posts in this topic

A new version of The Saint is in the works for US television.

Hunted star Adam Rayner will play Simon Templar in a new pilot, Deadline reports.

Simon West (The Expendables 2) is attached to direct the project, written by Jesse Alexander (Heroes).

Created by Leslie Charteris, the Saint franchise focuses on international thief and amateur detective Templar - a modern day Robin Hood.

Charteris's novels were famously adapted for a 1960s TV series starring Roger Moore in the lead role and again for a critically-mauled 1997 film version starring Val Kilmer.

In recent years, both James Purefoy (The Following) and Dougray Scott (My Week with Marilyn) have been linked to new Saint adaptations, but neither project came to fruition.

New star Rayner most recently appeared in BBC/Cinemax spy thriller Hunted opposite Melissa George and has also starred in BBC series Mistresses and TNT medical drama Hawthorne.

The Saint's pilot is expected to be shopped to networks once filming is complete. Production is set to begin later this month.

I actually enjoyed the 1997 movie...the gadgets were cool.

The soundtrack is one of the best out there.

I used to was re-runs of the old series when i was a kid with Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy.....a modern day robin hood who steals from rich criminals and also manages to get them in put in jail....but he has many saint personas and gadgets that help him get away with it...kind of like a spy/theif all in one.

Looking forward to this....if it's anything like the "Hunted" series it should be a excellent remake.
