HIGHLANDER Reboot Lands A Director

A new announcement this week with reports from Deadline breathed life back into the news of Summit Entertainment film reboot for Russell Mulcahy's 1986 fantasy swordplay action thriller, Highlander. Even though Snow White And The Huntsman nonetheless awaits a sequel, the VFX supervisor and second unit director for the 1st film, Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, has been granted his first directorial debut here, for the screenplay from Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, Neal H. Moritz who will be sharing producer credits with the original tv and film series producer Peter Davis, and Justin Lin who will executive make.

Some folks nevertheless share differing opinions on Hollywood remakes of earlier films and other mediums. In my opinion although, this is excellent news, as Iron Man has been a major good results for the Marvel franchise, and Moritz and Lin both share their lineage with Lin's personal directorial between the third and sixth installments of the highly effective and common Rapidly And Furious franchise. Not to mention with Davis on board, the film is practically positive to set the film off with a fresher vision whilst retelling the initial story featured in Mulcahy's 1986 film with actor Christopher Lambert.

No casting has been set yet now that Ryan Renyolds has already bowed out. Nonetheless, James McAvoy, Colin Farrell, Matthew Goode, Sam Worthington, Liam Hemsworth, Jason Momoa and Jeffrey Dean Morgan come to thoughts as some pretty great options for the hero and villain. But that's just me. At any rate though, after four films that ultimately led the film franchise into obscurity, this would be a fantastic time to capitalize and help garner some interest from filmgoers. Stay tuned!
