The response to the announcement of James Purefoy as the new Saint has been extremely positive with growing excitement -- there are many more happy Saint fans than when the Val Kilmer movie was shaping up. This choice has been really well done. Genius!
A few more details have trickled in. The Saint will be a German/Australian co-production. Exterior shots will be filmed in Berlin, Germany, with the interiors and post production will be done in Brisbane, Australia. Financing will be finalized this week, and there will certainly be even more details forthcoming in the near future.
