Ain’t It Cool is reporting that Neil Moritz is planning to produce a remake of the delightfully silly 80’s swordsman movie, Highlander. I generally refuse to care about anything Moritz is involved with, but there’s one way they could grab my attention: Cast Liam Neeson in the Sean Connery role. Neeson’s shown a rare ability to take formulaic dreck and make it compelling; his presence alone would make the movie worth watching. Anyone else in that role, though, and I’ll wonder why they even bothered.
Update: Yeah, I can’t resist.
