"Fast Five" Director Exits "Highlander" Remake

Posted: August 12th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Fast Five" Director Exits "Highlander" RemakeSubmit Comment
"Fast Five" director Justin Lin already confirmed that he'll direct "Fast and the Furious 6" and recently revealed that he just met with James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger to discuss ideas for "Terminator 5."

Being as busy as he is, he was forced to drop out of "Die Hard 5," and has now revealed that he will also not be directing Summit Entertainment's "Highlander" remake, which he has been working on since 2008.

The studio is now searching for a new helmer. THR says that the project is a high priority.

Great news that Justin Lin has exited the Highlander remake.

Maybe now the studio may consider not to remake the classic.

But if the studio continues the idea, I think John Hyams or Matthew Vaughan would be great choices to direct because these two directors have the skills to make a gritty, brutal R rated movie.

I am amazed how Vaughan made X-Men: First Class look like a prequel with the timeline and the acting.

And about John Hyams?

I was also amazed how Universal Soldier Regeneration turn out to be a gritty brutal action movie because the fight scenes were real and great and there was no special effects in the scenes.

The action was great, the acting was okay and the script wasn't the best but still was a bit good.

I think these two directors would be great choices to direct the Highlander remake if the studio still goes for it.

This somewhat of a good news to us. If Highlanders needs to be remade, it should not be Justin, it should someone unknown. Why remake this movie anyway?

This movie needs to be re-made like Hollywood needs the Lohans.
