image for Henry Cavill To Star in Lionsgate’s ‘Highlander’ Reboot From Chad Stahelski

EXCLUSIVE: In the world of the Highlander films, there can be only one and Henry Cavill has his eyes on the title.

Sources tell Deadline that the Man of Steel star is in talks for one of the lead roles in Lionsgate’s reboot of Highlander with John Wick director Chad Stahelski helming.

Peter Davis, the original producer of the first film, was also on board to produce before his death this past February.

The original 1986 Highlander pic starred Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Clancy Brown as immortal beings, hunting down one another and collecting more power.

The plot of this latest take is unknown, as is whether Cavill will be playing a brand new character to the universe or a character from previous projects.

For Cavill, it gives him yet another franchise with a large fanbase after starring roles in major tentpoles like Man of Steel and Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

Cavill is repped by WME and The Garcia Companies. »
