Quint from Aint It Cool News has spoken to director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo about his plans to reboot the Highlander franchise.
Talking about the tone he plans to strike with the reboot, he said: “I think it’s about following the character. I would love, if we make the movie, to feel the immortality. Immortality is a curse and I would love to feel that. You are overcoming time, but you see at the same time that the most beautiful things, the things that you love, are dying and you continue this life as a tragedy. You can’t love with anyone because you’re going to lose that person.
“I would love to introduce that flavor in a very strong way in the movie and at the same time the big connection with the Universe. ‘Why am I immortal? Why am I the chosen one?’
“In that sense, the movie is an epic. I think it’s some kind of adventure romantic story about somebody who trying to share in his immortality with someone. I don’t want to reveal more than that, but there is a new revelation in the movie that is connecting with that in a very deep and strong way. If we make it, I hope you enjoy it!”
