Scriptwriter Melissa Rosenberg is leaving a coven of vampires for another set of immortal beings, the Scottish highlanders. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the "Twilight" scribe is in negotiations to write a remake of "Highlander." As you may remember, the original came out in 1986 starring Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Clancy Brown.
Justin Lin, the guy who gave us the last three "Fast and Furious" movies is set to direct.
I love the original film, so the big question, will Rosenberg be able to give justice? We'll see, don't judge her from her "Twilight" expertise, Rosenberg came from the "Dexter" family after all.

As we told you last week, there are two competing "Snow White" projects. First, there's Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman," a re-imagining of the Brothers Grimm tale where Viggo Mortensen is set to play the Huntsman and Charlize Theron is in talks to play the Evil Queen. We' re waiting to see if Kristen Stewart will sign on to play Snow White.
Meanwhile, Relativity Media is also prepping their own Snow White tale, this one will stay true to the spirit of the Brothers Grimm fable although it will have a more edgy take. Julia Roberts was in negotiations to star last week, now, the Hollywood Reporter is saying that Roberts has signed on to play the Evil Queen part!
This version will be more of a vengeance movie where Snow White, with help from her seven dwarves, is looking for revenge after her evil stepmother kills her father.
We can judge Roberts' take on the Evil Queen June 29, 2012 when Relativity releases the film.
