The Return of The Saint

The Saint is coming back to TV - TV Squad: "The Saint is rising again. The venerable character, who was created by writer Leslie Chareris in novels in the 1920's, will be back on television in a contemporary setting, and actor James Purefoy (Rome) has been in talks to play Simon Templar, the suave, British 'good guy' thief. Aside from Purefoy, the Hollywood Reporter writes that the production team includes first class talent: Homicide's Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana (Oz), writer Jorge Zamacona, Bill Macdonald, and the original TV Saint himself, Roger Moore, and his son Geoffrey Moore."

I've read about two thirds of the Saint books and the only television version I've seen is Roger Moore's show. I'll give it a shot though, as I do like the character.
