Synopsis: Simon Templar, gentleman and master thief, is equally at home negotiating with power brokers, seducing beautiful woman, or dangling from the roof of a tall building. A man of a thousand disguises, Templar has eluded international syndicates, corrupt tycoons, and Interpol with equal ease. But he is more than a sophisticated thief. He is "The Saint," battling for justice where the law cannot or will not reach.
THE SAINT, which stars Val Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue, is directed by Phillip Noyce from a screenplay by Jonathan Hensleigh and Wesley Strick and a story by Jonathan Hensleigh. Also starring in the action-adventure is Rade Serbedzija and Valery Nikolaev. Presented by Paramount Pictures and Rysher Entertainment, "The Saint" is produced by David Brown, Robert Evans, William J. Macdonald and Mace Neufeld. The executive producers are Paul Hitchock and Robert S. Baker. Paramount Pictures is part of the entertainment operations of Viacom Inc.
Simon Templar (Val Kilmer) is rich, sophisticated and almost supernaturally skilled at stealing even the most closely guarded of treasures. He is also cold and cynical, until his path crosses that of Emma Russell (Elisabeth Shue), a young scientist whose life is in terrible danger. Emma has discovered the key to Russian billionaire Ivan Tretiak's (Rade Serbedzija) overwhelming ambition -- to crown himself the first Czar of the new Russian Empire -- and he will do anything to neutralize the danger that she represents.
Stirred by long-dormant feelings, Templar desperately fights to protect Emma while struggling to master the one identity he cannot assume with ease -- himself.
