Summit Entertainment has been struggling to get a new Highlander movie off the ground since Iron Man screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway were hired to pen the script back in 2008. Apparently, that script wasn't quite up to snuff because Summit brought in Twilight Saga screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg to rewrite it last year. Then, when Fast Five proved to be a monster hit and created new opportunities for Justin Lin, he decided he didn't want to be a "director for hire" and dropped out.
Rumors began circulating online back in September of last year that 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo would be taking over for Lin, but there was never any official confirmation of this. Evidently, Fresnadillo did sign on. In a recent interview for his latest movie, Intruders, Fresnadillo said he intends to "refresh the [Highlander] mythology." what did fresnadillo say? >> Posted 03.29.12 by BrentJS
