Back when when Hollywood was remaking 80s films at a reliable clip, Highlander was one of those that seemed to just be eternally on the docket. The last substantial piece of news about it was that former Superman/Witcher Henry Cavill was attached to it, and that was back in 2021. A lot has changed a lot in the past two years, and it sounds like the fate of that remake may be one of those things.
Per Deadline, Lionsgate is preparing to put the reboot film up for sale to international distributors at the upcoming American Film Market. With a budget said to be north of $100 million, the Chad Stahelski-directed movie is expected to liven up the current prospect of buyable films, which have been diminished thanks to the ongoing Hollywood strikes. At present, the movie is expected to have a production date of 2024, but that depends on how current negotiations between SAG-AFTRA and studios go over the next few days. (And should that fail, discussions reportedly won’t start up again until a few weeks into 2024.)
