'Highlander' Reboot Gains John Wick Director
THR is reporting that Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment have put director Chad Stahelski (John Wick) at the helm of their Highlander reboot, which is still in the search for new writers.
“I’ve been a huge fan of the original property since I saw it in high school,” Stahelski said. “Such great themes of immortality, love, and identity are all wrapped up in such colorful mythology. I can’t think of a better property that gives the opportunity to create interesting characters, mythic themes and action set pieces.”
The remake has been in development since 2008, and back in 2014 had Tom Cruise potentially playing a role.
