The Saint is Back

James Purefoy is the new Simon Templar, alias THE SAINT. (130): "The newest version of The Saint, the Robin Hood of Modern Crime created by author Leslie Charteris, is being produced by Cajun Pictures, and directed by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham, White Men Can't Jump,) from a script by William J. MacDonald (Rome) and Burl Barer, author of the most recent Saint novels."

The fact that Burl is involved is encouraging, and Purefoy was actually pretty good as Solomon Kane. I don't think this sounds totally awful (unlike the Zorro and Seven Samurai movies).

Can't be much worse than the inane Val Kilmer film from a few years ago.
