On May 16th, 2011 at Cannes Film Festival, RCR Media Group has announced that it came aboard to co-finance Summit Entertainment’s reboot of HIGHLANDER, which Neal H. Moritz’s Original Films is producing. Justin Lin, hot off Fast Five, is set to executive produce along with Rui Costa Reis and Eliad Josephson. 

HIGHLANDER is a property that is known around the world, and Summit’s re-imagination is sure to appeal to both existing and new fans of the HIGHLANDER lore. Based on the 1986 film, Highlander follows Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish swordsman. After centuries of dueling to survive against others like him, he must confront the last of his kind, a murderously brutal barbarian, who lusts for the Prize.
Iron Man co-writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway originally wrote the new film’s screenplay, which Twilight scribe Melissa Rosenberg was recently hired to work on, as well.
Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was annouced to be the Director at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival.
