Highlander reboot gets a new financier

Justin Lin still attached to direct

highlander

The Highlander reboot has found itself another company to foot its bill, with RCR Media Group signing up to co-finance the film with Summit Entertainment.

In a press release sent out to confirm the deal, Summit also confirmed that Justin Lin is still attached to helm the remake.

Considering Lin’s quickly turned into a hot property after the success of Fast And Furious 5, the studio will be lucky to keep a hold of the director.

Especially considering he’s also signed on for Fast And Furious 6, not to mention he’s acting as a spokesperson for Terminator 5.

Lin clearly won’t be able to direct all three films, though it’s likely he’ll remain on as producer while handing the camera to another director on at least two of the projects.

Do we need a Highlander reboot? Or is the cheesy original perfect as it is? Hit us up below...

      Although I liked the original - it was always a 'B' movie. This could, like the new Conan be taken to 'A' grade level.

      Lin's made the best film of the franchise with Fast and Furious 5, I think it'd be interesting to see how he does with this as let's face it, the original was a bit of a turkey. Dab, I don't think the world is ready for you on twitter.
