Here’s a project I totally forgot about. We have some traction on the long awaited Highlander reboot which John Wick helmer Chad Stahelski will be directing.
According to Deadline, The Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill, has been tapped to play the iconic role in the project which hails from Lionsgate.
I personally feel that Cavill should play an original character and that the OGP Highlander Christopher Lambert should be asked to make a special appearance to pass the torch to Cavill. Just a thought. I would even love to see Adrian Paul come back as Duncan.
This gives Cavill a new franchise to sink his teeth into as it still isn’t known if he’ll be playing the last son of Krypton in the future. Cavill is also working on the second season of The Witcher for Netflix so he’s still keeping busy.
Stahelski is also gearing up to do John Wick 4 so he’ll be a busy beaver for the foreseeable future. Keep it locked and loaded here for more as this project is surely going to accelerate.
