'Highlander' remake in the works at Summit

Posted on

Maybe there can be only two? Summit Entertainment announced today that it will produce a re-imagined version of 1986’s sci-fi cult classic Highlander. Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the screenwriters behind Iron Man, will write the script, which according to Summit, “will expand beyond the original film’s core mythology of immortals battling amongst us, hunting each other down for the mysterious prize.” (One source tells EW.com that Highlander doesn’t preclude Marcum and Holloway from working on an Iron Man sequel, but no deal is in place yet for that project.) No actor or director is yet attached, but Peter Davis, one of the original producers of the first Highlander, is also on board to produce the new version. One can only hope for a cameo from the original Highlander, Christopher Lambert.
