Despite being poorly received by critics, the tale of an ages-old battle between immortal Scottish warriors, has proved consistently popular among fans of sword and sorcery.
The good news is that the reboot, penned by Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway and directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, is to remain faithful to the original film.
Nicolas-Troyan told Deadline: "My first reaction to the reboot, like everybody else, was, really, do we need a remake? Then I read the script, and I thought about how Russell Mulcahy was this super visual video director who brought the pulse of the '80s to the film so well. I started thinking about taking those great characters and matching them with a modern, visceral take, and then I was in love with the idea and I just went for it."
