Highlander Highlander
Summit Entertainment is turning up the heat on their Highlander reboot. The studio has hired Justin Lin to direct and Neal H. Moritz to produce the next installment.

Justin Lin to Direct Highlander

Summit likes the combination, as it was Lin and Moritz who delivered Universal Pictures' most successful title of the year, Fast and Furious.

Summit Entertainment doesn't have a cast in mind just yet, but they do already have Iron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway working on the script.

The original installment was released back in 1986 and starred Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Clancy Brown and Roxanne Hart. The franchise got through four sequels and three TV spinoffs before eventually disappearing. Summit is hoping to take the original story, but expand on it greatly. The new film will center on the immortal Scottish swordsman Connor MacLeod, who must confront a murderous barbarian who lusts for a fabled prize.

No matter how the story goes, I just hope they bring back the ferrets. Oh wait, that's Beastmaster.
