The Highlander reboot has found a director in John Wick's Chad Stahelski.
According to THR, Lionsgate has brought on Stahelski after the property had gone through several directors and a development hell. Stahelski said:
"I've been a huge fan of the original property since I saw it in high school. Such great themes of immortality, love, and identity are all wrapped up in such colorful mythology. I can't think of a better property that gives the opportunity to create interesting characters, mythic themes and action set pieces."
He is an excellent choice for an action director, especially given the success of John Wick and its upcoming sequel. There is no word yet on who will actually be writing the script, but this is at least a positive step moving forward.
