the last time the saint returned it was boring and one of val kilmers worst films ever not even worth watching a shame really after the fine job moore had done before in truth a part of me hopes that this version either takes its time to get a good cast /plot sorted before it starts shooting unlike the a team or just doesnt bother

With those ingredients it's hard to believe that the first film failed.

I think I'm one of the few that enjoyed the val kilmer one, obviously a bit of a guilty pleasure (his disguises are almost as bad as Bruce Willis in The Jackal, i.e. a dodgy wig and tache combo).

I think it needs to keep it's distance from the Bournes, Bond and Hunts to succeed or it will flop.

I reckon he's got the right attributes, though it will kill his career if it flops

...another series of the Saint done in the 90's? Obviously bombed as noone ever mentions it in the same vein as Moore or Ogilvy.

I loved the old 70s show with Ian Ogilvy.They almost brought The Saint back with Barry Levinson directing.James Purefoy almost starred. It was almost Dougray Scott once also. He would still be good. So would James MacAvoy, Fassbender or McGregor.

The Saint is a British franchise therefore the lead actor should be a Brit. Tom Hardy would fill the shoes of Simon Templar quite well!

I quite liked the Val Kilmer film too, but agree that the role has to be played by a Brit to give this some credibility.  Was thinking Tom Hardy too.

Looking forward to umpteen sequels, with different actors. A bit like another franchise I could mention. Not that unconnected either.

Hes an excellent choice and the saint is more smooth than gritty so wont be like bourne at all hopefully, more james bond with a touch of thomas crown :)

Leonardo or Brad pitt can reprise the role of Saint. Period

According to Wikipedia it was half a dozen Australian TV movies starting in 1989, with Simon Dutton as The Saint. I'd never heard of it before!

Fassbender is a great choice. Templer shouldn't be like either Bond or Bourne. He isn't a killer or have an allegiance to any flag. Handy with his fists and a champion of the underdog (be that a fit bird so much the better). And none of this backstory malarkey - the Saint is meant to be a man of mystery. He does what he does and he is what he is.
