‘Highlander’ reboot and ‘John Wick 3’ being written

While promoting the 4K and Blu-ray release of John Wick 2, Chad Stahelski confirmed that he’s still attached and writing the Highlander reboot.

“Still am. Currently writing.  Just a massive amount of writing.”

Stahelski was asked to compare it to building the mythos of the John Wick franchise and if it was similar.

“Yeah – I love immortality and I love the love story. I look it as a ‘love story through time… with a lot of sword fights’”

Earlier in the interview with Collider he confirmed a third Keanu Reeves’ John Wick film.

“You want to show something different, something original… Why do people like John Wick? Because it’s a little different. We’re showing you some cool stuff that you don’t see in the Bond or the Bourne movies… Rather than trying to emulate them and do the ‘same old, same old’, we’re trying to give you the wacky side of what those worlds would be… But again, I think it would be a mistake budget-wise and creatively to just go big and blow up a freeway. That’s not our gig. That’s a comic book or a Bond gig. We want to show you cool and intricate hidden details. What are those little details in everyday life? Hopefully we make people look at garbage collectors and cleaner vans and taxi cab drivers and homeless people a little differently now.”

Many fans have clamored for a Highlander reboot, but nothing has materialized. Check out the full interview HERE
