It’s hardly news that Hollywood has really been reaching in recent years, and no movie, TV show or cartoon is safe from the reboot machine. Just when you thought we’d reached peak reboot with the upcoming Power Rangers movie, Paramount has proven that we haven’t reached the bottom of the idea barrel just yet: The studio is developing a redo of The Saint with plans to — surprise! — hopefully launch a new franchise.
FX's buzzworthy upcoming drama 'Tyrant' has made a few strong pushes in its casting thus far, but has finally elected its leader. UK actor Adam Rayner nabbed the main lead, the head of a family that finds itself embroiled in Middle Eastern politics, though Rayner's casting will likely take precedence over the actor's starring role in the proposed 'Saint' reboot.
A few months ago we were intrigued to hear that ‘The Saint‘ was to be revived as a new series with former ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘ and genre darling Eliza Dushku, along with former ‘Saint’ and 007 Roger Moore producing and starring. Adam Rayner will take the titular role this time around, though no official network is yet attached, so how does the first official trailer look? Eliza Dushku in a bikini, guns, explosions and genre stars, what more could you want?
A few weeks ago we were intrigued to hear that 'The Saint' was to be revived as a new series with former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and genre darling Eliza Dushku, particularly with former 'Saint' and 007 Roger Moore producing. Now, we've gotten word Moore himself will appear in the series (which lacks a network yet), along with fellow former 'Saint' Ian Ogilvy. Find out what other major genre stars have joined the series inside!
We've long held a special place in our hearts for Eliza Dushku, even if TV series like 'Tru Calling' or 'Dollhouse' never quite managed to find their footing. After all, there can never be enough ass-kicking babes on TV, but now we hear that Dushku has signed on to take part in yet another adaptation of 'The Saint' to be co-produced by James Bond himself, Roger Moore. Who's joining Dushku for the effort, and where can we see it?
