Furious Duo Do “Highlander” Remake”

“Fast and Furious” director Justin Lin and producer Neal H. Moritz are re-teaming for the upcoming remake of cult classic “Highlander” for Summit Entertainment.

In “Highlander”, after centuries of dueling to survive against others like him, Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish swordsman must confront the last of his kind, a murderously brutal barbarian, who lusts for the fabled Prize.

Summit’s film will expand on the original Highlander’s core mythology and according to the press release the plan is very much to “spur a new franchise for the studio”.

Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (“Iron Man”) are penning the script while Peter Davis will also produce.
