It seems like Lionsgate’s Highlander is heading towards more work. As Chad Stahleski said:

“We’re in the process of tweaking right now. I think we know what we want. More importantly than anything, we know what we want to make. It’s in the creatives. We know what we’re trying to make. It’s just a matter of getting it to the point where we feel, “Okay, this is it. Let’s go.” But we’re closer than we’ve ever been, so that’s good.”

The biggest question among people “Is Henry Cavill still attached to star in the film?” Maybe the future of his work as Superman is up to take off as Warner Bros. goes through facing problems following Discovery’s acquisition of the studio and Henry Cavill is always an in-demand actor. He is currently doing his work on The Witcher.
