Buffy star Dushku will play Patricia Holm, Templar's love interest, according to Deadline.

The 31-year-old actress previously starred in Fox series Dollhouse and Tru Calling, while her film credits include 2000's Bring It On and 2003's Wrong Turn.

Roger Moore - who famously played Templar in a '60s TV version of The Saint - has also joined the new project as co-producer. Simon West (The Expendables 2) is attached to direct, with Jesse Alexander (Heroes) writing the pilot episode.

The Saint's pilot is expected to be shopped to networks once filming is complete. Production is set to begin later this month.
