Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is set to make his feature directorial debut on the "Highlander" reboot at Summit Entertainment.

Art Marcum and Matt Holloway ("Iron Man") penned the script which is said to be fairly loyal to Russell Mulcahy's 1986 feature about Scottish immortal Connor MacLeod.

Nicolas-Troyan was a second unit director on "Snow White And The Huntsman" and "Maleficent". He replaces Justin Lin who was briefly attached to direct, and now remains onboard as executive producer.

Nicolas-Troyan is also said to be quite knowledgable of the franchise and its mythology, especially the TV series spin-off. His aim is to deliver a "modern, visceral take" on the iconic characters of the franchise.

He will supervise a script polish ahead of a production start next year. Neal H. Moritz and Peter Davis will produce.
