Here is an exclusive first look at Adam Rayner as Simon Templar. Rayner and Eliza Dushku topline the latest take on Leslie Charteris’ 70-book The Saint franchise. The backdoor pilot was directed by Simon West from a script by Jesse Alexander. Brad Krevoy’s film and TV production company MPCA is behind the project, which will be screened at MIPTV next week, with MPCA’s Francisco Gonzalez handling international sales. There is interest in the series from U.S. networks. Co-starring in The Saint are James Remar, Enrique Murciano, Thomas Kretschmann, Greg Grunberg and the two men who played the Templar in the previous two Saint TV series, Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy.
