James Purefoy As The Saint is Pure Genius

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.

James Purefoy To Play Simon Templar in The Saint

Breaking news on the forthcoming coming TV series of The Saint, and you heard it here first!

James Purefoy, who played Mark Antony in "Rome" is set to play the new Simon Templar in the forthcoming TV series of The Saint.

Bill Macdonald tells www.saint.org (the official website of The Saint Club) that his team is prepping a two-hour pilot for a European shoot. The reason for shooting in Europe is the current strike situation in U.S. would otherwise hold up production. Shooting in Berlin and Australia begins in April.

Bill goes on to say that the show is being produced by himself (William J. MacDonald), Geoffrey Moore (Sir Roger Moore's son), and Jorge Zamacona (most recently of "Oz").

James Purefoy, who will play the new Saint, was screen tested for the role of James Bond in 1995 for Goldeneye, and throughout 2004 and 2005 Purefoy's name was rumoured as a possible candidate to replace Brosnan as agent 007 in future James Bond films. These rumors surfaced again before the 2006 film, Casino Royale.
