    HIGHLANDER GOT A REBOOT

    The Highlander franchise was pronounced dead when the fourth sequel was made. Hell yes, the franchise ended with a sad note, what was once a cult classic turned into a trash in the end.


    Latest news has that – Summit Entertainment is preparing to raise Highlander again. The announcement by producer Peter S David is timely and director Justin Lin (Fast and Furious, Tokyo Drift) is now attached to the film.


    The series began in 1986 in Russell Mulachy's original film where Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery swashbuckling it all out. Then three sequels, two TV series, a Saturday morning cartoon and anime followed. The series received death note in 2007's Highlander: The Source.


    EO thinks that the core idea of Highlander - a secret, mysterious battle between immortals that spans centuries - was arguably never satisfyingly explored by the original films.

    The new screenplay is written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. The story will centralize an immortal Scots swordman forced to fight the barbarian for a mythical prize – well, it is the same. After that, time traveling and head reattachment will also pursue. Probably that's how the story goes after that right?
