Nice to know the backstory of Highlander
2 February 2014 | by (Co, Derry, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

Gregory said that he came up with the idea when he was in the Tower of London as a teenager. He was looking at all of the antiques from all over the world that were centuries old. He thought "What if you can own all of this." So he had the idea of an antique dealer who was immortal.

He also talks about how he was a fireman and that he was taking screen writing classes at the same time. He later wrote the film "Backdraft" based on his own experiences as a fireman.

Peter talks about writing the script with Gregory and his partner Larry Ferguson. He mentions a scene where Conner meets Napoleon that was written but never filmed. They also mention the casting of Lambert and Connery and getting Russell Mulcahy to direct this.

They talk about how this movie was a box office and critical failure. They were depressed because of this. That was until the movie gained a huge cult following and is considered to be one of the best action movies from the 80's.

Gregory has nothing nice to say about Highlander 2.
