You can read the scoop on their site and stay tuned for updates.
Great news, congratulations, what an exciting project!!!!! So happy for Henry!!!!
OMG great news!!! Henry as a highlander? Sign me in. I just hope we'll still gonna get many seasons of The Witcher. I love that show and Geralt.
I can't wait!!! 🎉🌺🥰 He's gonna rock the role. Geralt, Sherlock and now Highlander? With how many fictional characters can I be in love at the same time? Go Henry!
Fantastic news ❤️❤️❤️ love him so much.
This is absolutely brilliant news! Henry will be fantastic in this role, and I hope this is the beginning of an exciting and enjoyable franchise for him. Congratulations Henry!
Ancestors, strong will, love of land, origins...It’s all Henry! Congratulations! I’m Happy to hear another mighty project is on the move! Hugs,A
*Happy dance* Go king. Epic fantasy series just suit him. Absolutely loved hin in The Tudors (it's not fantasy I know) and now in The Witcher and I can't wait to see him in Highlander.
I love these news and the fact that he takes roles he loves. That is shown. Like the role of Gerlat. He nailed that one and I can't wait to see him as Highlander. 🤗👏
Fantastic news. Great fit.. Action, big story arc, a touch of fantasy and a hint of humour.. Outlander has proved the US market has an appetite for historic fantasy with proper accents...😁It's time for a Highlander remake. There can only one...
Congrats Henry😍👏❣ I have every confidence you will elevate the role and film to an unparalleled heights. Hope the whole process is a dream come true for you and for all involved with the project. Please keep us posted🥰. Henry💞, You are, and will forever be, my favorite...as there can be ONLY ONE❣
OMG!! Brilliant!!! I LOVE "Highlander"--the original movie--but mostly the TV series with Adrian Paul because of all the characters that can be played throughout the centuries to present day. I watched the series again two weeks ago! Congrats Henry! I can't wait but know it'll be awesome!!
Awesome news!!! I rewatched the first film (I had watched it as a kid and used to watch the TV show with my parents) and I loved it! Henry will be brilliant like always! <33333
These are great news. Highlander is a franchise that will suit Henry. I hope, if the aim for a trilogy, the first film to be set entirely in the past (in the 16th century) and explore the main character, his discovery of being immortal, his relationship with his mentor, his relationships with the mortals and his lover and the mythology of the immortals. They can make it epic like GOT with amazing swordsplay and maybe the last scene can take place in the present setting the second part. The second movie can be set in the present with an enemy from his past and many flashbacks from different eras (the highlands, WW1, etc for instance) and the last film can be set in the time of the gathering where the last few immortals will fight for the prize. Just my two cents. Thanks for the news HCN.
I can't wait to see Henry in Highlander! He'll be excellent!!!
