Chris Pine is in negotiations to show up as the new The Saint, which is being directed by Rocketman director Dexter Fletcher for Paramount Pictures.
Seth Grahame-Smith has written the script while Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Brad Krevoy will produce along with the late Robert Evans. The story centers on Simon Templar (a.k.a. The Saint), a Robin Hood-esque criminal and thief for hire.
The property was previously turned into the famed 1960s TV series starring Roger Moore and the 1997 film starring Val Kilmer, while there’s also been multiple other telemovie, radio and TV series adaptations with actors like Vincent Price, Louis Hayward, George Sanders and Adam Rayner
