"Iron Man" co-scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are going to pen the screenplay for a remake of the 1986 sci-fi cult classic "Highlander" says Variety
Russell Mulcahy directed the original story of immortal beings battling among humans, hunting down one another and collecting more power.
Christopher Lambert played Scottish swordsman Connor MacLeod while Sean Connery was an Egyptian and Clancy Brown was a barbarian bad ass known as the Kurgan. The movie spawned four sequels and no less than three television series-most notably the live action show from the1990's
For all of the sequels and spin-offs, nothing has quite matched the '86 flick, as far as I am concerned. Therefore my fingers are firmly crossed.
Production on the update is scheduled to begin later this year.
