Highlander Franchise to Be Rebooted

A sixth Highlander film lurks in the shadows. Will it raise the Highlander franchise back to its former glory, or dash the hopes of countless fans to such a depth that even an immortal can not survive?

Highlander: The Reckoning is the sixth installment in the franchise, but by all reports will be a reboot that serves as a retelling of the original 1986 film starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery as Conner McCloud and Juan Ramirez, respectively. It will follow the story of an Immortal from the highlands of Scotland, once trained by ancient Immortal Ramirez, fighting in modern times against other immortals in a "contest" called the Gathering; a contest whose ultimate end line is that there can be only one.

However, since the rumors are that this is an attempt to restart the franchise one could guess that this will be only one "Gathering" out of several, meaning that this film will not end in the prize being attained. Fans of Highlander will likely be willing to give the franchise another try, but stay tuned for further updates

Fast and Furious director Justin Lin is set to direct. Iron Man screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are set to write the re-telling. Producing is Neal Moritz.

Rumor to play the Kurgan is Vinnie Jones

Who should play Connor McCloud? Gerald Butler? And What of Ramirez? Chime in below and tell us who you think should take on the mantle of Highlander for this next generation.
