There should’ve been only one…. but when a sword’s still sharp, who is going to want to keep fencing!?

Summit (described by a producer friend the other day as ‘The new Fox’ – make of that what you will) has hired “Fast and Furious” helmer Justin Lin to direct a remake of the 1986 classic “Highlander”. Neal Moritz, who produced all four “Fast and the Furious” films, will produce.

The move comes a year after Summit acquired the “Highlander” remake rights from Davis-Panzer Prods. and assigned “Iron Man” scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway to pen the script.

Summit’s film will expand on the original film’s core mythology of immortals battling amongst us, hunting each other through the ages by tapping its newly minted creative team to take its re-imagination to new heights. Plans call for the re-imagination to spur a new franchise for the studio.

“We are privileged to have this amazing opportunity to reinvent one of the great franchises,” said Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman of Summit Entertainment. “Neal and Justin have proven more than once that they can deliver an entertaining and exciting blockbuster.”

Added Peter Davis of Davis-Panzer Productions, “Justin and Neal are an exciting directing/producing team and I am confident that they will deliver a truly dynamic film while being totally respectful of Highlander Legend.”

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 fabled Prize.
