There can be only one...again

I knew it was only a matter of time before we dragged this sci-fi, sword-swinging, pissing contest back into the mainstream, cgi-laden, money hungry, modern cinematic abyss and now it has happened.

"Iron Man" co-writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway have signed up with Summit Entertainment to write a revision/ re imagining/ remake/ rehash of the 1986 sci-fi cult classic, "Highlander."

Yes, "Highlander," where, for some reason they cast an unknown New Yorker as an Irishman, a well-known Scott as an Egyptian and Clancy Brown as a melodramatic freak.

The Hollywood Reporter (does anyone even read that rag anymore?) says that Summit Entertainment purchased the rights to remake the flick from Davis/Panzer Prods and Peter Davis, one of the original producers of the 1986 film, has agreed to come on board to help produce the new film.

We'll keep an eye on this and report back when news of casting starts happening.

As always, stay tuned.

Do they really need to waste the time to do a remake?
