The star of “The Witcher” and “Man of Steel” Henry Cavill told fans about his new role on his Instagram.
“A deep dive into the history of the franchise with all the tools at our disposal will make this an adventure I will never forget,” the actor commented on the post and drew a flurry of congratulations from fans.
What role will Cavill get in the remake of the franchise, the actor did not say. It is known that negotiations with the Lionsgate studio are at the final stage, the Witcher star will play one of the main characters.
The remake is being directed by Chad Stahelski, with Gregory Wyden, the author of the first Highlander movie, taking over as executive producer. The creators keep the plot of the picture a secret. Together with Cavill, Patrick Wachsberger and Amanda Lewis will appear on the set.
Recall that the universe of “Highlander” includes three series and four feature films. The first part of the film was released on the wide screen back in 1986.
