There Can Only be One Highlander Remake
Source: The Hollywood Reporter May 20, 2008
Summit Entertainment is bringing back to the big screen the 1986 sci-fi cult hit Highlander, with Iron Man co-writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway on board to pen the redo, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The Russell Mulcahy-directed original starred Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Clancy Brown as immortal beings. Lambert played Scottish swordsman Connor MacLeod, Connery an Egyptian and Clancy a barbarian known as the Kurgan. The movie spawned four sequels and three television series.
Summit acquired the rights to remake the cult classic from Davis/Panzer Productions. Peter Davis, one of the original producers of the 1986 film, will also produce the new version of the film.
seriously, what the fk?
why can't hollywood leave decent movies alone anymore, they have to go back to the 80's for TV shows and movies to remake them because they've just run out of ideas?
come on writers, get a grip... use some of that creative juice you were b!tc#ing about over the writers strike and actually earn your pay instead of just rehashing someone else's brilliant idea...
just for the record i am completely against this and can see it completely tanking at the movies, wrecking the entire franchise...
oh no, wait, The Source already did that...
wanders off muttering swear words about writers and hollywood shafting original ideas
