The movie, which will be a reimagining of the 1986 Christopher Lambert-starrer and has been developed by the director since 2016, already has "Superman" actor Henry Cavill attached to star.

The movie was greenlit as part of a new deal between Stahelski and Lionsgate, where the director will focus on "Highlander" as well as his hit Keanu Reeves-starrer, "John Wick".
