The reboot of Highlander has been in the works for a long, long time, but the latest update confirms that the project is still on the way.
It must be a good decade and change now that plans have been afoot for a new Highlander movie. The director most recently appointed to the project is John Wick helmer Chad Stahelski, and he’s been involved in the new film since the end of 2016. That said, here we are nearly four years later, and there’s precious little sign of it heading into production.
But as per a new interview with Stahelski, the project is very much live and kicking. He told Discussing Film that “we’re in heavy development mode on Highlander”.
“Tweaking the scripts, writing, conceptualising sequences, how we’re going to do everything. We probably have a lot more in-person kind of things, but it hasn’t slowed down our development process at all”, he added.
That said, it is in a queue of projects, with Stahelski having to shoot John Wick 4 as the next film on his docket. It’s hard to imagine that Lionsgate won’t want a John Wick 5 after that as well. But we wait and see. The full interview – and it’s well worth a read – can be found here.
