Simon Templar, The Saint, is set to invade your TV… again.

Hopefully it’ll be more in the tradition of Moore and not the dire Val Kilmer movie! Moore played Templar from 1962 to 1969.

The new pilot from ITV  will film next year says writer Ed Whitmore who is writing it with Chris Lunt: “There is a post-Breaking Bad appetite for morally grey characters.

“Simon Templar is a kind of Robin Hood figure, he’s timeless.” 

So expect the search for the British anti-hero to kick off very soon…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
