There can be more than one (director) for Highlander reboot



There's no small sense of irony that a movie about immortality continues to see life well beyond its original death. And so it is that Highlander, long a target for rebooting by Hollywood, now has another director tapped for the projec.

The Hollywood Reporter says Chad Stahelski (of John Wick fame) is now on board to bring new life to the movie franchise that began in 1986 with the film starring Christopher Lambert, Clancy Brown and Sean Connery

According to, Stahelski is the fourth director to be attached to Highlander.

"I've been a huge fan of the original property since I saw it in high school," Stahelski told THR. "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 rest of the details - cast, production timelines, etc - have yet to be worked out so don't lose your head just yet.
