Justin Lin says Highlander lives!

Justin Lin says Highlander lives!

“Highlander”. One of my guilty pleasures. Time-traveling Scots in kilts. Queen. Clancy Brown. French American Scottish hero. While I understand the reasons being the franchise being rebooted – the last couple of sequels blew! – I’m still a little unsure about seeing anyone other than Christopher Lambert getting his Quickening on as Connor MacLeod.

Justin Lin, the “Fast Five” director who is now attached to reboot “The Terminator”, has been onboard the “Highlander” reboot for a good year or so now. We haven’t heard much of a peep from him/the studio regarding the flick though, so until today I’d assumed the film was as good as dead.

Not so.

“I’ve been working with [‘Iron Man’ writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway] on the script. That’s one where Summit has been really good [about letting it develop], and for me, it’s about making sure that we can take it to the place where I feel comfortable and great about making it. I feel like I have a very good studio and team and we’re working on it”, Lin tells MTV.

Question is, when will “Highlander” happen? Before “Terminator” After the latter? Before the inevitable “Fast Six”?

“I have different projects at different stages. You work on so many projects all at once, and at some point, you have to make the call. I feel like right now, ‘Highlander’ is in pretty good shape, but I still have to see all the other things come together for us to go make it. When I get back [from promoting ‘Fast Five’ internationally] we’ll keep working on it.”

Just combine the “Highlander” and “Terminator” franchises and you’re done, mate – Connor MacCloud sent back in time to dismantle the T-800.
