Deadline report that Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, in Toronto to promote his latest movie Intruders starring Clive Owen, is Summit's pick to direct their relaunch of the popular Highlander series. Fresnadillo is now in discussions to direct a film that Summit will co-finance with Rcr Media Group. Fresnadillo is also attached to direct a reboot of The Crow, which has Bradley Cooper attached. The original Highlander starred Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery and was an exciting mix of sci-fi and medieval fantasy. Although flawed, it remains something of a cult favorite. It's numerous sequels were pretty awful although the tv series starring Adrian Paul wasn't half bad. Deadline also report that this new script by Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway takes the story back to the original film's mythology and is by all accounts impressing all that have read it. The coveted directing spot apparently opened »

A box of sour nerds, a glass of lumpy Nesquik and a sedentary evening of all the low-budget Sci-Fi that Sky One had to offer. A classic late-90s night in. For much of the mid-20s generation, Buffy, Relic Hunter and Dark Skies were all part of a staple diet, or maybe just an amuse bouche for the 6 o’clock Simpsons. But of all the fantasy series classics, it was Highlander was the one that left so many palates divided. Back in those carefree days of 1997, there were two schools of awkward pre-teens, those who followed Highlander, and those who tolerated it after the closing credits of Quantum Leap.
Even if you were part of the latter, the one thing you will remember is Adrian Paul, with his wet look hair and errie resemblance to a young Sean Connery. To the horror of Lambert fanboys across the board, Paul, »

It’s another jam-packed week of DVD and Blu-ray releases, here’s the rundown of what’s available to buy from today, June 20th 2011.
Pick Of The Week:
Savage Streets (DVD)
Brenda’s got a switchblade and she knows how to use it… See Linda Blair (The Exorcist) take bloody revenge on a gang of low down dirty street punks in Savage Streets, a brutal journey into rape, violence, switchblades and bear traps. When Brenda (Blair) and her all-girl gang of tough talking chicks, The Satins, refuse to party with a car full of local drug pushers called The Scars, the girls think nothing of it, but they didn’t reckon on the bruised ego of Jake and his feral pack of no good thugs. Targeting Brenda’s deaf sister, they invade the school and savage her, leaving her on the critical list. Now Brenda must scour the streets in »
Technophobes the world over are proven right in Richard Clabaugh’s futuristic sci-fi/horror/action flick Eyeborgs, and UK audiences will get to see just how right they are later this month when the film hits DVD courtesy of Momentum Pictures. In the meantime check out the full release details and trailer!
When an army of mobile, AI-driven security cameras created by the government to monitor all communications in the wake of a terrorist attack prove they’re sporting more than just lenses, the only man capable of stopping them is TV’s "Highlander" himself, Adrian Paul. When the machines and resistance wage war, there can be only one winner – and those of you in the UK will get to find out who that is on June 20th.

Danny Trejo is the king of trash cinema: and the man with the most grizzled face on modern screens skates the fertile ground between B-Movie greats and downright D-quality garbage on a regular basis. And as if to prove the point, he is about to strut his stuff in Eyeborgs, an independent sci-fi horror that bills itself as a mesh of the techno-anxiety of I, Robot and Enemy of the State and the creature horrors of Gremlins and Critters.
I’ve just been sent the trailer, and I couldn’t resist sharing it. So look beyond the leap, and feast your eyes on some seriously imbalanced film-making.
Here’s the frankly bonkers synopsis for what promises to be a definite filmic curio:
In the wake of another devastating terrorist attack, the United States government passes the “Freedom of Observation Act, a law requiring all communications and surveillance cameras to be constantly monitored for national security. »

Funny how things can evolve throughout the creative process. When I first saw a listing for Deadly Descent on UFO International Productions' website months ago, the synopsis described skiers and snowboarders trapped on a mountain by an avalanche having to also deal with a pack of wild dogs after them. Somewhere along the way those ravenous dogs got turned into a Yeti and the title got massively elongated to Deadly Descent: The Legend of the Abominable Snowman.
In 1992 Glacier Peak, Washington, a small group of back country skiers climb Glacier Peak, one of most remote mountains in the Cascade Range. Lead by Jake Tanner, the group is somewhere high up on the mountain where they disappear and are never seen again.
Present Day - Glacier Peak. A helicopter soars over the snowy peak. In the rear cabin is a U.S. Special Forces member fresh off a long tour in Afghanistan: Brian Tanner. »
There can only be one! The Highlander franchise tagline couldn’t have been more wrong.
After a series of films featuring Christopher Lambert as the immortal Connor MacLeod a successful Highlander TV series starring Adrian Paul was launched, with Paul playing another member of the Clan MacLeod. Eventually, both immortals met for the film Highlander: Endgame and that was the end of the main franchise until Summit Entertainment announced a reboot in 2008, with Justin Lin (Fast Five) signing on to direct back in 2009, with Neil Moritz producing.
Although Lin is busy planning Terminator 5 with Arnold Schwarzenegger attached, as well as the obligatory Fast & Furious 6 movie, he’s still on board with Highlander and the script is being worked on.
Next week will mark the three-year anniversary to when we first reported about the Highlander remake ...

UFO International Productions continues to feed the trash compactor with Deadly Descent: The Legend of the Abominable Snowman , starring Chuck Campbell and Adrian Paul. The art below is what they're using to sell the picture. Just screams "Abominable Snowman," right? I took a gander at UFO's site and I see there's another Deadly Descent listed - complete with action-packed art . But the plot that goes with that page details another story that does not include an abominable snowman. Instead, a pack of genetically engineered wolves are after snowboarders. So, either UFO has a series of Deadly Descent films in the works or they just said halfway through development, "F**k the wolves, let's go with a goddamn Yeti." »
A variety of items from some of Adrian’s movies and TV shows are going under the hammer, including an official Highlander jacket signed by the actor, an autographed Peace Fund T-shirt, the actor’s personal workout sneakers and much more.
The auction runs until April 21 and can be accessed via eBay.

Another day, another remake. Heat Vision broke the story today that Melissa Rosenberg, the woman who has been adapting all the Twilight novels into screenplays, is in negotiations to take over the pending Highlander remake for Summit Entertainment. Justin Lin has been tapped to direct, with Neil Moritz and Peter Davis on board as producers.
For those of you who don’t remember the original 1986 movie, the plot it as follows: Connor MacLeod (played in the original by Christopher Lambert) is an immortal being living in 15th century Scotland who is kicked out of his village for not dying after being wounded (harsh). He is taken under the wing of another similar to him (Sean Connery) who teaches Connor the art of swordsmanship and also gives him the knowledge that the only way to kill others like him and Connor is to cut their heads off. Why would he need to know this? »
