THE SAINT Headed To Television With Eliza Dushku

Dushku boards the project and will team with actor Adam Rayner who will portray the titular character also known as Simon Templar. Do you prefer Templar or Bond?


Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tru Calling) has joined the Brad Krevoy project as a love interest for English actor Adam Rayner ( Hawthorne,Dragon Age: Redemption ), who portrays Simon Templar in a backdoor pilot (A backdoor pilot is a television movie which is used to gauge audience interest. If popular, the tv movie will go on to become a television series). Simon West ( Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Expendables 2) is directing the pilot from a script by Jesse Alexander (Heroes, Alias).

Simon Templar was created by Leslie Charteris in 1928 for a series of books published as "The Saint", which lasted nearly 60 years. The Saint has previously given the small and big screen treatment including a 1960s series starring Roger Moore, and a 1997 film starring Val Kilmer.

A British intellectual property, The Saint has often drawn comparisons to James Bond.
