And After The New Terminator? New Highlander, Naturally

Today, in bringing back everything from your childhood:

“I’ve been working with ['Iron Man' writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway] on the script,” Lin told MTV News in an exclusive interview, confirming that “Highlander” is still very much a priority for [director Justin Lin].

Yes, a Highlander reboot, from the guy who brought you Fast Five, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and Fast & Furious (which, btw, is the fourth film in the F&F franchise. I know). And the guy who will be bringing us the fifth Terminator movie, supposedly with Schwarzenegger in tow.

Once there’s a second Highlander continuity, do the two have to fight to the death?

Lin told MTV Movies:

[Highlander is] one where Summit has been really good [about letting it develop], and for me, it’s about making sure that we can take it to the place where I feel comfortable and great about making it. I feel like I have a very good studio and team and we’re working on it.

Well, alright, we’ll give Lin the benefit of the doubt for now, after all, first he’s got to do Terminator 5 and an inevitable sixth Fast & Furious film. We just hope that if the former Governator is signed on for Terminator again, that they can get Sean Connery on a Highlander reboot. I mean, come on, he hasn’t aged a day. (He’s just outlived some of his hair).

    Unless they can resurrect Queen to do the theme song… I’m going to pass.

    I’m going to cast my vote as “worried but interest is piqued” and leave it at that. Or perhaps I should just tote a Tobyism and cite “cautious optimism”?
