The 31-year-old actor will star in and executive produce Paramount's upcoming reboot of The Saint, according to >The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie's script will be penned by actor and playwright Kwame Kwei-Armah, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Brad Krevoy and the late Robert Evans are currently listed as producers for the project.

Based on a series of novels and short stories by Leslie Charteris, The Saint was famously adapted into a television show of the same name starring Roger Moore in the 1960s.

Paramount turned the literary work into a movie in 1997, with Val Kilmer portraying the mysterious Simon Templar character as a professional thief who uses the names of various saints for his heists.
