Nice to know the backstory of Highlander
bazmitch23 from Co, Derry, Northern Ireland
2 February 2014
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.
