Ahead Of Henry Cavill’s Highlander Reboot, The Actor Discusses What Drew Him To The Franchise

A Highlander reboot has been in development in one form or another for over a decade and a half, but the project has finally been making significant progress over the last few years. One of the biggest steps forward has been the casting of Henry Cavill, who’s had a lot to say about the project since he came aboard in 2021. Although plot details for this take on the Highlander mythology are still being shrouded in secrecy, Cavill has opened up about what drew him to the franchise.

Cavill has been making the press rounds promoting his new movie Argylle, which is currently playing in theaters and will later become available to stream with an Apple TV+ subscription. Among the places he’s stopped by Happy Sad Confused, and while chatting with host Josh Horowitz alongside director Matthew Vaughn, he had the following to say about why the Highlander franchise appeals to him:

I’m going to have to answer that very carefully. I was – am – a Highlander fan. They were great fun movies. Obviously, I watched them when I was a lot younger, and since rewatched. But also the TV show; I really enjoyed the lore behind it. That sense of a tragic warrior with more of a story to tell than just a cool guy with a cool sword doing cool things. And this goes even deeper into that.
