Connor MacLeod Returns! Summit Announces "Highlander" Reboot! 


Summit Entertainment, the home that "Twilight" built, has hired "Fast & Furious'" Justin Lin to direct "Highlander" the reboot! The studio wants a franchise!

Lin's producing partner for "Fast and Furious," Neal H. Moritz, will oversee production. "Iron Man" scriptwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are writing the script.

I enjoyed the original 1986 film directed by Russell Mulcahy. But it's unclear whether the original cast -- Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Clancy Brown, and Roxanne Hart -- will make an appearance for the reboot.

According to Variety, Summit plans to expand "on the original "Highlander" premise of immortals hunting each other through the ages. The new pic will center on the immortal Scottish swordsman Connor MacLeod, who must confront a murderous barbarian who lusts for a fabled prize."

Moritz is also producing the upcoming "Flash Gordon" and "The Green Hornet."

As far as the "Highlander" remake is concerned, no word yet on cast or production start date so stay tuned...For now, let's look at the trailer of the original 1986 film.
