Summit Entertainment is in talks with their star scribe, Melissa Rosenberg – who has written all five of the Twilight scripts – to work on their long-planned Highlander reboot.  For anyone who doesn’t remember the 1986 fantasy action film starring Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Clancy Brown, and Roxanne Hart, Highlander is about the battle throughout the ages between immortal warriors (and is the movie that gave birth to a franchise that included sequels and TV spin-offs). Variety reports that the new film will expand on the original premise, and will center on Scot Connor MacLeod confronting a murderous barbarian. Here’s hoping Christopher Lambert gets to make a cameo appearance.
