There shouldâ€™ve been only oneâ€¦. but when a swordâ€™s still sharp, who is going to want to keep fencing!?
Summit (described by a producer friend the other day as â€˜The new Foxâ€™ â€“ make of that what you will) has hired â€œFast and Furiousâ€ helmer Justin Lin to direct a remake of the 1986 classic â€œHighlanderâ€. Neal Moritz, who produced all four â€œFast and the Furiousâ€ 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.
Summitâ€™s film will expand on the original filmâ€™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.
â€œWe are privileged to have this amazing opportunity to reinvent one of the great franchises,â€ said Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman of Summit Entertainment. â€œNeal and Justin have proven more than once that they can deliver an entertaining and exciting blockbuster.â€
Added Peter Davis of Davis-Panzer Productions, â€œJustin 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.â€
In â€œHighlanderâ€, 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.
