While Dimension keeps working away on getting the next "Highlander" pic going (I believe it’s at script stage and that they might have a director), Davis-Panzer Productions and Imagi International are doing an animated "Highlander" film to hold all five, six, McCloud fans over.

According to Variety, The film will be animated through Madhouse of Japan ("Tokyo Godfathers"). David Abramowitz, who was head writer on the "Highlander" TV series, will pen the screenplay.

Production supervisors will be Kevin Eastman ("Heavy Metal 2000") and Joe Pearson. Peter Davis and William Panzer produce, with executive producers Thomas K. Gray and Galen Walker.

Imagi handled primary animation duties for DreamWorks’ "Father of the Pride," which airs on NBC.

"Highlander" details the adventures of an immortal 16th century Scottish warrior who fights evil in modern America with his special powers.

The first "Highlander" starred Christopher Lambert opposite Sean Connery (news) and was produced by 20th Century Fox in 1986. In addition to its many sequels, it also inspired an animated series through Gaumont Animation and two syndicated television series.

The latest "Highlander" live-action feature, "Highlander: The Source," is scheduled for production through Dimension Films later this year, for release in 2005. It’s believed that none of the original stars will be returning for that one.
