The Saint Reboot – It’s Really Happening!
Several years ago it became apparent that a new version of The Saint was being developed. Initially featuring James Purefoy (who we think would have been perfect) the production sadly stuttered into development hell back in 2008.
Rumours at the time indicated shooting had already commenced, but the lack of any footage from this suggests otherwise. Still, no need to be disappointed as we finally have our successor to Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy!
Say hello to Adam Rayner:
Clearly meant as a canonical continuation of The Saint/Return of the Saint (in which Ogilvy was surely meant to be the same character as Moore, a few years on), the presence of the two previous faces of Simon Templar is particularly fan-pleasing.
What do you think? Is this the right time for Simon Templar’s return?
