Eliza Dushku joins The Saint remake

Roger Moore is to co-produce a pilot for The Saint remake, starring Hunted's Adam Rayner, and Dollhouse's Eliza Dushku...

The last two months alone have been witness to plans for new versions of Jumanji, Police Academy, The Brady Bunch, Short Circuit, Video-flipping-drome... And now, The Saint (do do-loo do doo-looo), the Roger Moore-starring sixties show based on the novels of Leslie Charteris is the latest to be dusted off and given a shiny new iteration.

A pilot is in the works for a revamped version of the Simon Templar stories (no doubt because the nineties Val Kilmer version was so well-received...), starring Hunted's Adam Rayner in the title role, with Eliza Dushku providing love interest and we assume, running and fighting support, as Patricia Holm.

The pilot's screenplay is coming from Heroes and Alias writer, Jesse Alexander, while The Expendables 2 and The Mechanic's Simon West will be calling the shots. Here's a little reminder of the original to jog your memory...
