There Can Be Only One! Or Not!

Highlander has a huge fan following amongst geek circles, even if it is a rather silly fantasy driven concept.  (This geek is counted amongst those fans.) The first movie is a cult classic, the two sequels were terrible, then there was the television show.  The show was good and fun and it's how many people came to know Highlander and its mythology. The show also spawned  two spinoff movies.  One was ok, the other might be one of the worst films ever made.  Now Highlander is getting the remake treatment.  Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Days Later) has signed on to direct the film with Justin Lin (Fast Five) producing.  No word on casting or when production begins yet but we do know that heads will roll and the film will claim that there can be only one.
