British actor, Regé-Jean Page has revealed that he will be returning to the screen and is set to star in the film adaptation of the crime novellas, The Saint.
The actor is set to play Simon Templar, and will also serve as executive producer on the project.
‘The Saint’ follows Simon Templar, better known as The Saint, a Robin Hood-esque criminal and thief for hire who goes on a globetrotting adventure. Details of the reboot are still under wraps.
According to Deadline, the new production which is Page’s second with Paramount, will be produced by Lorenzo DiBonaventura, Brad Krevoy and Mark Vahradian.
Page made headlines early 2021 when he crushed ‘Bridgerton’ fans’ hearts with news that he will not be returning to the Netflix period drama’s second season.
Production for the anticipated season kicked off shortly after in the United Kingdom with recent news of an indefinite pause due to Covid-19.
