What I fail to understand is why haven't we got a "reboot/revive the fanchise" movie, or a new TV series.
Last I heard, they were close to move forward with a show to star James Purefoy, but it seems he dropped this project for something called "The Philantropist". Before that, a couple of years ago I had heard that RKO had a new adaptation of The Saint in New York (didn't even know that they were still around), but little more besides that.
Why hasn't this character been re-adapted for the screen? Simon Templar seems so perfect for it.
Don't the copyright holders quite know how to adapt the character, or is it some copyright issue by itself?
Does anyone have any idea regarding this - what adaptations have they attempted to lift off the ground, or why none of them has been realized so far?
Seems such a waste of a good character and ripping yarns.
