According to Deadline, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has been tapped to direct the new reboot of "Highlander", the story of immortal swordmen fighting each other to claim an ultimate prize.

Justin Lin was originally slated to direct, but dropped out to direct "Fast Six".

Russell Mulcahy directed the first, 1986 film, which starred Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery. That, in turn, spawned a TV series.

The new movie comes from a script written by the team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway(Iron Man, Punisher: War Zone), with some reworking from Melissa Rosenberg(The Twilight Saga).

Summit Entertainment:
Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will direct Summit Entertainment's re-imagination of the cult film HIGHLANDER co-financed by RCR Media Group. Summit's HIGHLANDER is written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. Neal H. Mortiz and Peter Davis will produce the project along with Enrique López Lavigne and Belen Atienza. RCR Media Group's principles Rui Costa Reis and Eliad Josephson will executive produce the film. Justin Lin will also executive produce. 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.
