“28 Weeks Later” director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, has recently signed on to helm “The Crow” remake and if the roumours are to be beleived hw is also considering the job of directing the remake to the 80’s Classic “Highlander”, which has a script by “Iron Man” writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. “Fast Five” helmer Justin Lin did have the job but he dropped out in so he could to focus on the sixth “Fast and the Furious” installment.
The original “Highlander” starred Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery, and was a masterpiece of cinema! it went on to spawn a few pretty poor sequels and a fairly successful successful TV series.
All this talk has left me asking one question! Do we need a remake of the Highlander? only time will tell. hopefully the remake will live up to the legacy of the original.
