highlander-rebootThings have been relatively quiet on the Highlander reboot front ever since the formerly-attached Juan Carlos Fresnadillo departed the project last year before losing would-be leading man Ryan Reynolds this summer. Now, Deadline reports that things are picking up again and that visual effects supervisor Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is now slated to make the film his directorial debut.

The original Highlander movie, released way back in 1986, stars Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery. After centuries of dueling to survive against others like him, Connor MacLeod (Lambert), an immortal Scottish swordsman is forced to confront the last of his kind, a murderously brutal barbarian, who lusts for the Prize that comes with being the last of their kind.

Many writers have worked on the reboot including, most recently, Iron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. Their take is said to be the one that Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment is very happy with and the plan is now to move forward with, in addition to Nicolas-Troyan at the helm, Neal H. Mortiz, Peter Davis and (formerly attached to direct) Justin Lin producing.
