Paramount Reboots "The Saint"

23 June 2016 9:25 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount has secured the film rights to Leslie Charteris' novel series "The Saint" with plans to launch another franchise for the studio.

The story follows Simon Templar, a smart, quick-witted man who went after the scourges of the Earth - corrupt politicians, war profiteers, drug runners - to benefit his country and the greater good.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Brad Krevoy and Robert Evans are expected to produce the film - twenty years on since the release of the Phil Noyce-directed previous film adaptation starring Val Kilmer.

The best known adaptation remains the TV series which starred Roger Moore in the title role.

Nearly 20 years after Val Kilmer took on the role, a new take on The Saint/Simon Templar is heading to the movies...

When Val Kilmer left the role of Batman after 1995's Batman Forever, he jumped from on big franchise to what was expected to be another. He took on the lead role in 1997's movie of The Saint, directed by Phillip Noyce. It was expected to lead to box office gold. But following not great reviews, the film failed to really connect, and a planned franchise was abandoned. 

Just under 20 years later, however, The Saint is on his way back.

Based once more on the books by Leslie Charteris, Paramount is working on a new movie, having resecured the rights to the novels, and it has its eyes on a new action franchise. It's going to be a movie series too, rather than the plans for a new TV show, »

The Saint Remake Is Happening at Paramount Pictures

17 June 2016 6:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Paramount is currently in production on the next installment of its Transformers franchise with Transformers: The Last Knight, the studio is planning on launching a much different franchise. The studio has acquired the rights to Leslie Charteris' long-running book series The Saint for a new movie reboot. The studio previously distributed the 1997 version of The Saint, which starred Val Kilmer and Elizabeth Shue.

Leslie Charteris original book series, which ran from 1928 to 1963, followed Simon Templar, a thief who would pull off elaborate heists, stealing from corrupt politicians, drug dealers and other criminals and spread their wealth among the less fortunate. The books were adapted into a 1960s British TV series which starred Roger Moore as Simon Templar. There was also a recent attempt to revitalize the property as an American TV series, which will now be released as a TV movie later this year, starring Adam Rayner (Tyrant) as Simon Templar, »

17 June 2016 2:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount is developing a movie reboot of “The Saint,” two decades after Val Kilmer’s thriller and 50 years after Roger Moore’s TV series.

The studio has secured a deal for book series rights and is closing producing deals with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Brad Krevoy and Robert Evans with the goal of starting an action franchise.

The Saint” is based on Leslie Charteris’ book series, which follow the debonair Simon Templar character first introduced in the 1928 novel “Meet the Tiger,” followed by “Enter the Saint” in 1930. Templar stole from corrupt politicians and warmongers, leaving a calling card of a stick figure with a halo.

George Sanders starred in half a dozen films as “The Saint” in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Prior to his days portraying James Bond, Moore starred in a popular long-running British TV series during the 1960s.

The 1997 movie starred Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue, and was »

Remaking 'Roots' should have been an awful idea. But the new one's great.

26 May 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"This is how I heard about the boy, Kunta Kinte," Alex Haley (Laurence Fishburne) tells us in the opening moments of History's new miniseries Roots. "And this is how I'll tell you the story." The importance of stories, and the way that we tell them, form the heart of the new Roots, which debuts Monday night at 9 (the eight-hour project will air over four straight nights, simulcast on History, A&E, and Lifetime). From the time we meet Kunta (Malachi Kirby) as a young man abducted from his home in Juffure, Gambia by slavers, until we leave his descendants over 100 years later in the post-Civil War American South, Roots prizes the power of stories and tradition, from how Kunta's Uncle Silla (Derek Luke) teaches him the ways of the Mandinka warrior, to how Kunta's grandson Chicken George (Rege-Jean Page) will tell his own offspring stories about the grandfather he never met, »

TV Review: ‘Roots’

24 May 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In this age of niche networks and splintered audiences, there’s no controversy in noting that the updated version of the iconic “Roots” miniseries, simulcast May 30 on History, A&E, and Lifetime, is unlikely get the huge audience garnered by the original that aired on ABC nearly 40 years ago. Yet this new take on the saga should be viewed by as wide an audience as possible, from families to school kids to viewers interested in important chapters of the American saga. The lessons the new “Roots” teaches over the course of its eight hours, which air on four consecutive nights, are worth revisiting, and a number of outstanding performances enliven this retelling of the story of Kunta Kinte and his descendants.

The word “lessons” in the previous sentence is used advisedly. This miniseries shares the same impulse to instruct and enlighten that was a hallmark of the original, which was »

Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke and Jack Huston, who will appear in Timur Bekmambetov’s forthcoming Ben Hur re-imagining later this summer, are signed to star in Phillip Noyce‘s thriller Above Suspicion, which begins shooting later this month.

Above Suspicion is written by Chris Gerolmo, and is based on the book by Joe Sharkey. The novel was published back in 1996, and is a personal look at a crime of passion, and describes an FBI agent’s successful career, family life, and extramarital affair that ended in murder, and of the guilt that drove him to confess in spite of his impenetrable government shield.

Huston will play the FBI agent, while Clarke will reportedly play his wife in the film. Here’s the official blurb from Deadline, who broke the scoop.

Above Suspicion is the chilling true story of a newly married FBI poster-boy assigned to an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky. »
