Paramount and Chris Pine enjoying a good understanding thanks to the Star Trek franchise in which the actor plays Captain Kirk, this return of the Saint could be very timely. Indeed, the shooting would take place before the captain finds his crew for a fourth intergalactic adventure.
Production is well advanced
Anyway, the writing of the film, entrusted to Seth Grahame-Smith, would be well advanced. Rather known in the register of horrific diversion, he is the author of Orgueil et Préjugés & Zombies as well as Abraham Lincoln, Chasseur de Vampires , two works adapted to the screen with more or less success.
On the production side, the studios offered the services of Dexter Fletcher, praised for his work on Rocketman . Finally, note that Robert Evans, who was one of the producers of the 1997 film, participated in the project before dying last year.
