Chris Pine is in talks to star in Paramount’s reboot of The Saint. 

Multiple outlets confirm that the Wonder Woman star is in negotiations to star in the remake of The Saint, directed by Rocketman helmer Dexter Fletcher. Fletcher will direct from a script penned by Seth Grahame-Smith. 

The Saint is based on a 1920s book series of the same name by Leslie Charteris. The book series inspired a 1960s TV show starring Roger Moore, and was turned into a film in 1997 starring Val Kilmer. 

According to Variety, Paramount Pictures is planning the reboot as a start for an ongoing feature franchise.
