Anybody else here a Highlander fan? I thought so. Well, a remake of that awesomely wicked cool 1986 sci-fi fantasy flick starring Sean Connery, Clancy Brown and Christopher Lambert has been in development for years now. It has a studio (Summit), a director (Justin Lin) and a producer (Peter Davis). Now all it needs is a script.

Highlander follows the exploits of immortal 16th century Scotsman Connor MacLeod as he engages in a centuries-spanning battle with other immortal warriors. The film flashes between past and present as he fights to be the last remaining immortal, because "There can be only one!"

So far, two separate teams of screenwriters have tried to bring a fresh, new perspective to the exhilarating journey that is the lusty life of Connor MacLeod. And what a life it is. The action! The adventure! The conflict! The humor! And, yes, the romance! But to date, no one »
