Paramount is working on a new film version of The Saint

Simon Templar is to return.

After a failed big screen attempt helmed by Val Kilmer, work is underway on a new movie version of The Saint.

Paramount is understood to be working on a new film based on the original series of books by Leslie Charteris that ran from 1928 to 1963 (via Deadline).

A pre-Bond Roger Moore first made the role of Simon Templar famous in a TV adaption of the books, with Paramount now attempting a reboot after acquiring the rights to the books.

 The deal at the studio is being finalised with the smart money on Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Brad Krevoy and Robert Evans helming the launch of a new movie franchise.
