I always enjoyed the Val Kilmer version. Yes there are some cliche bits and it hasnít aged well, but Kilmer did a good job and paired well with Elizabeth Shue. I always wondered why there werenít more.*

Iíd be up for Pratt doing this, but would like to see a serious tone to it. Might be a good opportunity for him to spread his acting away from comedy.

* Looks like it opened #2 after Liar Liar which was still running strong, Did $120M international, which 20 years ago Iíd think isnít too bad.

I like Kilmer’s version of The Saint. I like Chris Pratt. I’m not sure I like the idea of Chris Pratt as the Saint.

I would like to see someone more along the lines of say, Sebastian Stan.

i do like the Kilmer movie too, but i think Pratt could pull just about anything off and can see this being good if done right...

It would be cool if they ever release the original cut of the Saint with the palace fight finale.

Probably. I just get a little annoyed when Hollywood can’t break away from the same half dozen actors/actresses for the lead in every movie.

I get that they want a “name” actor to bring in more money but how many threads have we seen here in the last couple of years that read “...Chris Pratt in talks to star.”? I mean, shit, if Hollywood had its way we’d have the Guardians of the Galaxy/Avengers series, Jurassic World series, new Indiana Jones series, and Uncharted. All starring Chris Pratt.
