Just a few weeks after director Justin Lin confirmed he had to bow out of Summit Entertainment's plan to re-imagine Highlander on the silver screen, the studio has announced they've found a new man to lead their production.
Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will direct Summit Entertainment’s re-imagination of the cult film co-financed by RCR Media Group. Summit’s Highlander is written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. Summit acquired the rights to remake the cult classic from Davis – Panzer Productions, Inc. in May of 2008. Production on the film is slated to begin spring of 2012.
