Summit Entertainment has it in its head that there can be more than one “Highlander” and will produce a remake of the fantasy film. Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (“Iron Man”) will write the new script that the studio hopes will feature a new actor in the Christopher Lambert role of Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod.
Summit wants to breathe new life back into the franchise an eye on at least a trilogy of films, if not more.
“I have always dreamed of reinventing this franchise,” stated Patrick Wachsberger, Summit’s co-chairman and president.
What we know as of now is this new “Highlander” will be a mix of contemporary settings, action, mythology and medieval Scotland.
“We think the franchise will work on a global basis,” said Summit prexy Erik Feig.
