U.S. Opening Date: TBA
The team behind the most recent Fast & Furious
movie - director Justin Lin and producer Neal H. Moritz - will direct and
produce this remake.
Iron Man co-writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway will
script this remake of the big screen 1986 sci-fi cult hit
Russell Mulcahy's original starred Christopher Lambert
as an immortal Scotsman named Connor Macleod, one of a race of immortals
who can only be killed when beheaded with a sword.
After living in peace for four centuries, he is
challenged by an old enemy named Kurgan. During a fierce sword battle in
the 1500s, Connor MacLeod, a simple Scotsman known as a poor fighter, is
mortally wounded - but he does not die. MacLeod learns from the
mysterious Ramirez (Sean Connery) that he is of a race of immortals. These
rare knights never age and never reproduce, they can only meet death by
the blade of another of their kind. Leaping back and forth through the
centuries, MacLeod once again meets the evil Kurgan who nearly killed him
500 years ago.
Peter Davis, one of the original producers of the 1986
film, will also produce the new version of the film.
Reasons why we hate Hollywood # 3 634!
After milking all they can from this franchise – after
all it spawned four sequels (all of them crap) and three television
shows! – they are now going the remake route. Dear God, why? The last
sequel didn’t even make it to the cinema screens and was consigned to DVD
shelves to gather dust – lots of dust.
And worst of all: Queen aren't even around anymore to
write any new songs for it! Come back Freddie Mercury - all is forgiven!
