Eliza Dushku To Co-Star In 'The Saint' Backdoor Pilot, Roger Moore To Co-Produce

Deadline:
Buffy The Vampire Slayer alumna Eliza Dushku is set to co-star opposite Adam Rayner in The Saint, a backdoor pilot from Brad Krevoy’s film and TV production company MPCA. No network has been attached. Simon West is directing the pilot from a script by Jesse Alexander. Alexander is set as showrunner of the project, a new take on Leslie Charteris’ The Saint 70-book franchise. 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. (Adam Rayner, Brad Krevoy, Eliza Dushku, Jesse Alexander, Roger Moore, Simon West, The Saint, TV)

I think that was the only thing I liked Roger Moore in was The Saint. I even liked the movie when Val Kilmer made it in 1997. I hope this is good though...we'll wait and see.

Duskhu needs her own project. She has the looks and the talent. I loved her work in Dollhouse.

Me too...I just liked Dollhouse. It should have gone on for a couple more seasons but as soon as I get hooked on something it gets cancelled.
