Justin Lin Moving Ahead with Highlander Reboot
Since Fast Five made a boatload of money, Justin Lin’s name has been getting attached to nearly every reboot or next big movie. At least now we know who is backing up a Highlander reboot, with Justin Lin at the helm. Summit Entertainment, who owe everything plus a million to Stephanie Meyers and that damn Twilight franchise will be funding the Highlander remake. Seriously, if there was no Twilight, you’d probably have never heard of Summit Entertainment.
Regardless, Highlander seem to be steaming along now, and from what I can tell no casting updates, we do know Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Both wrote Iron Man and Punisher: War Zone) worked on the script and this little synopsis:
In Highlander, after centuries of dueling to survive against others like him, Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish swordsman must confront the last of his kind, a murderously brutal barbarian, who lusts for the Prize.
So yeah, so far, it’s basically redoing the original with what we know at this moment, we’ll keep you updated as the news comes out!
