Chris Pratt In Talks For The New The Saint 2

“Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World” actor Chris Pratt has reportedly entered early negotiations to star in the title role of a reboot of “The Saint” franchise at Paramount Pictures.

The story follows Simon Templar, a smart, quick-witted man who went after the scourges of the Earth – corrupt politicians, war profiteers, drug runners – to benefit his country and the greater good.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Brad Krevoy and Robert Evans are expected to produce the film – twenty years on since the release of the Phil Noyce-directed previous film adaptation starring Val Kilmer. The best-known adaptation remains the TV series which starred Roger Moore in the title role.
