Roger Moore joins growing Cast of #TheSaint

The news that Roger Moore is not only co-producing the new 2013 incarnation of The Saint, but that he will also be playing a role on-screen made headlines this week.  Many fans are extremely pleased to hear that the most famous Simon Templar of all, Roger Moore himself, will be guiding Adam Rayner's character both on and off the show!

The known cast and crew list is growing as details emerge from the first week of shooting.  The filming went really great this week, and the show is now taking a short break for the holidays, and will resume the shoot in San Diego just after the New Year.    

If you take a close look at the list, you'll notice Thomas Kretschmann is slated to play the role of Rayt Marius. This name should be quite familiar to fans of Leslie Charteris' books, as Rayt Marius appears in the 1930 novel, The Last Hero, and again in the following book, Knight Templar.  He's also mentioned in 1932's, Getaway, and his final appearance in print was in The Misfortunes of Mr. Teal, in the novella, "The Simon Templar Foundation", 1934.  This is really great news, as it means that the Producers are doing their homework and reading the books, something that is sure to pay off in making this new show more Saintly!

I like the credit, but I am unaware of a novelization of the pilot, although I am more than happy to write it. I do have as full length Saint novel in the works. taking place in UK, USA, and the Republic of Pasala in Central America. It has been boiling on a back burner for some time, but the production of the pilot has compelled me to complete it as soon as possible. A UK publisher has requested the title RETURN OF THE SAINT....although I think I will subtitle it THE SAINT STRIKES BACK :-)

Enjoying the original series on RTV an METV...can see why Roger Moore was picked as James Bond...always enjoyed The Saint character, thru the George Sanders "Saint series" of movies. Hope the new show is just as good as the original...if not better! Did not enjoy the Val Kilmer treatment of The Saint and hope this leads to a new series of Movies.
