Eliza Dushku to co-star in Backdoor Pilot, The Saint

  • HeyUGuys
Eliza Dushku, best known for her brilliant work on Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dollhouse, has now been cast in an upcoming pilot, The Saint.

Deadline report that Dushku is set to star opposite Adam Rayner (Hunted, Hawthorne) in the backdoor pilot – a standalone episode that can be broadcast even if it isn’t picked up to series – bringing a new take to the original series of novels by Leslie Charteris.

“It will follow the exploits of Simon Templar (Rayner), a brilliant criminal who uses his considerable illicit skills as a modern-day Robin Hood as he infuriates local law enforcement and woos Patricia Holm (Dushku), his on-again, off-again romance.”

Roger Moore starred in an earlier adaptation back in the ’60s, which saw Moore play the role soon to be filled by Rayner, running for over a hundred episodes, and now Moore is set to serve as co-producer on the project.
