Or, in the case of the Highlander, two – as in a remake of the original film that starred Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Clancy Brown. The remake of the flick that kicked off the immortal franchise will be Summitt Entertainment, who picked up the rights from Davis/Panzer Productions.
While I will never understand the need for a remake of an original film, that still stands up today mind you, there is some good news to go along with the story. First, Peter Davis, the producer of the original film, will be wearing the same cap for the redux, and second, writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are already on board to write the “reimagining”. Marcum and Holloway are the writers behind the summer hit Iron Man.
No word on release date or stars, but thought we’d pass the info along to you.
