The 1st Highlander was the best in the series. I hope they getChristopher Lambert to play some role in this. Maybe he can play Sean Connery's character as the teacher.

Yeah, the first highlander is basically the only one that is relevant (and a lot of that has to do with the epic swordfights set to the Queen soundtrack). After that the series totally went off the rails. It's hard for me to imagine that Highlander has that big of a fanbase anymore.

I think the fanbase is def. still around - I have a few friends that are big Highlander nerds.

I'm one those Highlander people...I still watch the tv series sometimes but you're right about he first movie being the best.
