Major Update On HIGHLANDER Reboot Within!

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

Back in 1986 director Russell Mulcahy saw the release of his film HIGHLANDER. Despite having enjoyed little success in its initial U.S. release, the movie eventually gained a huge cult following and inspired a franchise that includes sequels and television spin offs.

Summit Entertainment has been planning to do a HIGHLANDER reboot for a long time now and it appears that this new film is still rolling along as Latino Review reports that Dave Bautista will be taking on the villain role of The Kurgan. Bautista made waves in Hollywood with his performance as Drax the Destroyer in last year's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.

As of now, no one has been cast in the lead role of Connor MacLeod. The studio wants actor Tom Cruise in the role of Ramírez but Cruise has not been confirmed.

Cedric Nicolas Troyan is attached to direct the film. The script was penned by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway along with Melissa Rosenberg. Neal H. Moritz and Peter Davis are set to produce along with Justin Lin as executive producer

Original synopsis:

"When Scottish clansman Connor MacLeod discovers his true identity as a member of a legion of immortals, he embarks on a legendary journey spanning continents and centuries, eventually landing in modern-day New York City. Connor faces his ultimate test when other immortals begin to appear in the city, leading to a titanic showdown where only one can claim victory."

We will continue to bring you more on the HIGHLANDER reboot as it unfolds.
