Summit Entertainment intends to revamp the Highlander franchise with a new film, and will most likely be returning to medieval Scotland.
As a huge fan of last year’s Journeyman (which was cancelled much too soon), I would love to see Kevin McKidd as MacLeod. And that McKidd is Scottish is another bonus. After The Source, I was afraid the franchise would lay dormant for a while. As much as I loved the first Highlander movie, as well as the TV series, I do think it’s time for a revamp.
According to SciFiWire – http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?id=58910
This 5th season will be the last for Stargate Atlantis, but they have the go-ahead to make a 2-hour movie. And the SciFi Channel says they will air it before it goes to DVD.
While I’m excited that Atlantis will get to make a bigger budget movie, I’m really going to miss the weekly fix that no other science fiction show is filling right now. At Comic Con, they mentioned another Stargate spin-off in the works. But who knows when that will happen.
