The police procedural TV series based on Washington Irving's classic short story has been a surprise hit in the Us. Can the supernatural drama gain a similar following in the UK?
In the Us, they call autumn "fall". It seems appropriate when applied to the galloping herd of TV shows that traditionally make their debuts during the season of turning leaves and spiced lattes. These untested young colts are corralled into a ratings steeplechase that rapidly turns into a slaughterhouse. Some fall at the first hurdle. Others fade after a promising start. Many simply vanish off a cliff. You either finish strong or not at all.
Of 2013's fresh batch of TV runners and riders – mostly diluted or recycled versions of thoroughbreds past – Sleepy Hollow looked spectacularly unpromising: an attempt to fashion a police procedural out of elements lifted from Washington Irving's classic short story. In the Us, »

Growing up in a house with no cable I can tell you that I watched every episode of Highlander mostly because it was what was on, and I really did enjoy it. But I know the movies and series have some real mega fans out there and I’m curious what you all think.
We’ve been reporting on the Highlander movie reboot, though it’s been more than a year since we’ve had anything to report. Previously-reported director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has been replaced by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who is making his directorial debut after being visual effects supervisor and second unit director for Snow White And The Huntsman.

(Cbr) When it comes to most movies, there can be only one director. For Summit Entertainment’s upcoming remake of "Highlander", Deadline reports that it’ll be Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, whose previous film experience is in visual effects and as a second-unit director. The script was penned by "Iron Man" writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, based on a franchise that debuted in 1986. Word is that the new version will take plenty of cues from the first, which focused on an immortal warrior named Connor McCleod (Christopher Lambert), who learns about his lineage from Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez (Sean Connery) and fights the »

Summit Entertainment has signed a director for their Highlander remake, and most of you have probably never heard of him. His name is Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, and this will be his first time directing a feature film. Before landing this gig he was a visual effects supervisor and second unit director on Snow White And The Huntsman. Fast and Furious director Justin Lin was attached to direct the movie at one point, but ended up dropping out. He's still a producer on the film though.
The studio is moving forward with a script from Iron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. The story follows a character named Connor MacLeod, "a Highlander who discovers he is one of a dwindling group of immortals who wander the earth and kill each other in combat for the final “Prize” – immortality."
We really have no idea what to expect from this movie, or what the style will be like, »

Summit Entertainment hasn't had the easiest of roads when it comes to development on its Highlander reboot; we've already seen both director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) and leading man Ryan Reynolds (Turbo) depart the project, but it seems the studio hasn't given up hopes of bringing Connor MacLeod back to the screen with Deadline reporting that Cedric Nicolas-Troyan has signed on to make his feature directorial debut. An Academy Award-nominated VFX supervisor for Snow White and the Huntsman, Nicolas Troyan's other VFX credits include One Hour Photo, The Ring, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, while he's also served as second unit director on Disney's upcoming Maleficent.

The in-development Highlander reboot has suffered some pretty big losses over the last year. First, in November 2012 it was reported that director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo - who had been attached to the project since 2011 - had decided to drop out of the film, and then this past summer we learned that Ryan Reynolds - who signed on in May 2012 - was hitting the road too. Finally, however, we have some good news for the movie, as apparently it's found a brand new director. Deadline is reporting that Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, best known for his work as a visual effects supervisor and the second unit director on Snow White and the Huntsman, has signed a deal with Summit to make the next Highlander movie as his directorial debut. The project is moving forward with a script by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, and the latest report says that they are sticking fairly »
The long-gestating reboot of “Highlander” has now chosen its director. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is “the one.” This will be the first feature where he’ll serve as director, after cutting his teeth as a visual effects supervisor and second unit director on films like “Snow White and The Huntsman.” Deadline broke the news and spoke to the man himself, fresh from landing the gig:
“I have been working on my pitch for this since the summer, and when I got there I met the original producer and I just started geeking out and he loved it. The first movie came out when I was a teenager in France and it was one of my favorite films of those years. I loved the series also, they shot a lot of it in France, on the Seine River. My first reaction, like everybody else, was, really, do we need a remake? Then I read the script, »

Over the past year, Summit Entertaimnent's reboot of Highlander has lost both its director, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later), and star Ryan Reynolds. But now the project might be getting back on track as Deadline reports the studio has hired Cedric Nicolas-Troyan to make his directorial debut on the feature film which has a script from Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. It seems like a risk to let an inexperienced director take on a film that will require ample special effects, but Nicolas-Troyan was the VFX supervisor on Snow White and the Huntsman and the first two Pirates of the Caribbean films. The original epic fantasy (starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery) had our hero battling an unstoppable barbarian who covets the power gained from there being only one of near-immortal beings left alive. Lambert played the title immortal who was guided by Ramirez (Connery) and fought »

For years producers have been trying to get a "Highlander" reboot off the ground, with a number of high profile directors flirting with the project (most notably "Fast and Furious" filmmaker Justin Lin, now on board as an executive producer). Well, it looks like they have finally found their director and chances are you've never heard of him. But, as "Highlander" finally secures some talent, the big screen revamp of "Mortal Kombat" has lost its director (he's also someone you've never heard of). Hey, these things happen. First: according to Deadline, Summit has hired Cedric Nicolas-Troyan to make his directorial debut on "Highlander," having previously served as a visual effects supervisor and second unit director on "Snow White and the Huntsman." Nicolas-Troyan will direct a script written by "Iron Man" screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, which supposedly sticks pretty close to the 1986 original. In that film, Christopher Lambert starred »

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.

The filmmaker will make his directorial debut on Summit Entertainment's fantasy film, reports Deadline.
Nicolas-Troyan served as visual effects supervisor and second unit director on Snow White and the Huntsman.
The franchise centres around a group of immortals who vie for dominance by battling each other to the death.
"I have been working on my pitch for this since the summer, and when I got there I met the original producer and I just started geeking out and he loved it," said Nicolas-Troyan.
"The first movie came out when I was a teenager in France and it was one of my favourite films of those years. I loved the series also, »
Summit Entertainment has hired visual effects supervisor Cedric Nicolas-Troyan to direct their upcoming reboot of Highlander. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was previously attached to direct with Ryan Reynolds starring. Both have since departed the project.
The original project centered the immortal Scottish swordsman Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert). He is mentored by Ramirez (Sean Connery) and spends centuries dueling other immortal rivals. After taking out most of his kind, he find himself fighting for his life against the murderously brutal barbarian Kurgan (Clancy Brown). They fight to become the final remaining immortal, who will influence the future of mankind.
There can be only one! Or perhaps two if the previous director leaves the project. It’s been a bump ride for the Highlander reboot/remake/resomething. Last year director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo left the project and then a second casualty was announced this summer when Ryan Reynolds dropped out. Without a director and without a star, it appeared as though the film may go unmade, but now a new name has stepped up to the challenge. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who received an Oscar nomination for his visual effects work on Snow White And The Huntsman, will make Highlander his directorial debut. Troyan seems very excited by the prospect. Talking to Deadline he stated:
I have been working on my pitch for this since the summer, and when I got there I met the original producer and I just started geeking out and he loved it. The first movie came out »

Summit Entertainment has set Cedric Nicolas-Troyan to direct its remake of Highlander, reports Deadline. This marks his directorial debut after working as a visual effects supervisor and second unit director on Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron starrer Snow White And The Huntsman. The original film told of an immortal Highlander called Connor McLeod (played originally by Christopher Lambert) and his journey through the years, from time with his mentor Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez (Sean Connery) and his beloved Heather (Beattie Edney), to his present location as an antiques dealer in New York, confronting other immortals, and battling for the "Prize" of mortality. Clancy Brown played the powerful Kurgan Victor Kruger who McLeod is destined to meet in a final showdown. »
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (left) is The One. Or until the producers decide to hire someone else, anyway. Given the history of Summit’s “Highlander” reboot, who the heck knows what will happen between now and when the film is supposedly going into production in 2014. Until then, Frenchman Cedric Nicolas-Troyan will make his feature film debut on “Highlander”. The reboot is expected to stay pretty faithful to the 1986 original starring Christopher Lambert, with Connor MacLeod discovering his powers, being trained by the Spanish Ramirez (originally played by Sean Connery), and battling the barbarian Kurgan for all the marbles. But of course we know it won’t really be the end. Summit isn’t putting all their money into this thing so it’ll end with just one movie, after all. There will be sequels if the reboot does well, and you can expect an ending that isn’t really an ending in the first movie. »
