Highlander Remake May Go To
The Crow’s Juan Carlos Fresnadillo
You might remember hearing a year or so back that Summit Entertainment will be taking point on a remake of Highlander. The bad news, of course, is that it’s yet another remake. The good news is that this particular remake will allow us to listen to people bellow “There can be only one!” all over again.
Plans continue to move forward for the remake, with the latest word being that Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, director of The Intruders, is the studio’s top choice, according to Deadline. Summit will co-finance the project with RCR Media Group.
If Fresnadillo’s name sounds familiar, that’s because he directed 28 Weeks Later, and he’s also pegged to helm another upcoming remake, The Crow. There’s no word on how the director landing Highlander might affect the other remake.
