Jonathan Hensleigh's draft cast Simon Templar as a mercenary hired by a billionaire Russian oil and gas tycoon to steal the secret of cold fusion from an eccentric but beautiful American scientist. The story would take place in Washington, D.C., Upstate New York, St. Petersburg, and Moscow. Setpieces included Dr. Russell skydiving while strapped into a wheelchair and a plane landing in Red Square. Darwin Mayflower described it as one of the top unproduced screenplays. See more »

I'm glad it stopped bleeding. You don't need stitches. We have to disinfect it though.
You really are an angel.

It's gonna hurt.

Ha ha...! sorry...
[serious, realizing it wasn't funny]
I'm sorry... Are you alright?

"You don't believe any of this cold fusion mumbo jumbo do you"
The Saint starring Val Kilmer is one of my all time favourites I can watch it again and again and again!
The Saint is hired by Russian gangsters to get a secret cold fusion formula from a brilliant, beautiful and young scientist played by Elisabeth Shue. Anyway he falls in love and has to outwit the dangerous gangsters.
Val Kilmer plays the eccentric master thief the Saint who has a dark past and an impressive talent for disguise. All the different characters the Saint disguises himself as are memorable. I personally like heroes with a dark past who aren't perfect and have suffered to become who they are today.
The chemistry on screen between Val Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue is excellent - and well Elisabeth Shue is beautiful! This is such a fun feel good film (although it does have dark elements to it) that gets better every time I watch it and personally I do find some characters touching especially the Saint himself who Val Kilmer plays perfectly.
This film has a bit of everything - romance, comedy, drama, suspense and action and is definitely worth renting and is definitely in my collection!
