‘The Saint’ Reboot Trailer: Eliza Dushku in a Bikini, Probably Some Other Stuff
A few months ago we were intrigued to hear that ‘The Saint‘ was to be revived as a new series with former ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘ and genre darling Eliza Dushku, along with former ‘Saint’ and 007 Roger Moore producing and starring. Adam Rayner will take the titular role this time around, though no official network is yet attached, so how does the first official trailer look? Eliza Dushku in a bikini, guns, explosions and genre stars, what more could you want?
Having already been adapted to 15 feature films, ‘The Saint’ will soon hit TV with the release of a new backdoor pilot produced by Roger Moore himself and written by Jesse Alexander. For those unfamiliar with the project, ‘The Saint’ follows brilliant criminal Simon Templar (Rayner) as he uses his considerable skills as a modern-day Robin Hood, off-setting local law enforcement and pursuing his long-time romantic interest Patricia Holm (Dushku).
Deadline obtained an exclusive new trailer for ‘The Saint’s latest incarnation, which smartly plays to the genre crowd with extensive feature of Eliza Dushku and the inherent action within. The series has amassed an impressive amount of supporting talent as well, including James Remar (‘Dexter‘), Enrique Murciano (‘CSI‘), Thomas Kretschmann (‘Wanted’), Beatrice Rosen (‘The Dark Knight‘), Yani Gellman (‘90210‘), Greg Grunberg (‘Heroes’), Michael Ornstein (‘Sons Of Anarchy‘), Sonalii Castillo (‘Heroes’), Sammi Hanratty (‘A Christmas Carol’), Oliver Bell (‘The Sparticle Mystery’), Kirsty Mitchell (‘Capone’s Boys’), and Jason Brooks (‘Star Trek’).
