well this is happening in Hollywood - with Ryan Reynolds as the potential new "Highlander"...
maybe a first class chance for that O.S.T.? or something new by Dr, May?

If a Highlander film doesn't have "Princes of The Universe", it's not a Highlander film. So I'm pretty positive Queen will be involved, whether it's a new OST or the original one.

=================================
Highlander didn't have the song anywhere in it's soundtrack.

Well, then if a Highlander film doesn't have "Delilah", it's not a Highlander film either.

What the hell dude.. It was the opening for the first movie, and was NOT in the second movie.. (AKOM was played on a jukebox in the second)
You are now obliged to order it on Amazon and watch it 3 times!!!

Ryan Reynolds is a smug, irritating cunt, I hope they pick someone else.
If I were to pick any song in particular from the original to be used in a remake it would have to be Princess of the Universe. It's a kick ass tune and it goes hand in hand with the film. Maybe, just maybe, it could be a hit this time around? It deserves to be.

100% used in the first movie - it works pretty well through the opening scenes IMO. Don't recall it being played on 2nd movie tbh.

And hell yeah, it definitely deserves to be a hit this time round...quality track :)


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

ahh, one of my favourite movies as a kid, along with the animated series. I still've my action figures, haha!
Of course it was. it was the opening of the movie, afrer Ramirez' speech. Then u have one year of love, then forever, then hammer to fall, then a snippet of don't lose your head and of course 4 the ending you have that nice version of magic. Greeaaat soundtrack!!!!!!!!! Specially who wants to live forever.

"Highlander" does not need "rebooting" it's a classic, where-as all the "Highlander - sequels" just want plain "booting" into the middle of the road, for a big truck to run over them.


Joyful the sound

No one cares if it NEEDS rebooting or not, it will be rebooted whether you or anybody else likes it or not. Just like Brian and Roger will continue collaborating with widely disliked pop singers whether people like it or not. That is just how it works.

I agree with the guy above. Put "Delilah" in the opening credits. Guaranteed box office smash!

Definitely, because POTU was 100% the opening credits of the first one(No better way to open the film IMO).

Not so sure about the second one, I only saw it once and that was years ago!

Yeh, he's an acquired taste, however I really like him. He rarely fails to impress me, even in films that aren't particularly memorable.

"If I were to pick any song in particular from the original to be used in a remake it would have to be Princess of the Universe. It's a kick ass tune and it goes hand in hand with the film."

Completely agree. :D

"Maybe, just maybe, it could be a hit this time around? It deserves to be."

The original was a big enough hit to lead to numerous sequels, and a TV show.

I've only seen the all once, so it's very possible i'm wrong.

I'm referring to the song, not the film. I would love Princes to get the recognition it deserves, brilliant song.

As to Ryan Reynolds, I hate him at present because I was made to watch a God awful romantic film with him in by my mrs a few weeks back. I have enjoyed some of his stuff before, so maybe a bit hasty with the C bomb!

Ahhhhhh crap... Someone's already gone and called it "PRINCESS of the Universe" again...

Yeah, it's played in a different stripped drum and guitar style version that runs on the opening wrestling match,a bif bearded dude slaps his chest and then the "watch this man fly" lick plays. ---tracking shot to Conner in the stands (impressive rigging shot considering the date)

Played over the boring red on black titles that the commentary reveals were based upon a budgetary constraint


Ryan Reynolds really DOES fit the word cunt. Spot on.

Sounds like it could be worse than any of the bad sequels... Almost as bad as casting Sasha Cohen as Freddie.

They oughta use a no name actor and put the focus on the damned story.

I doubt anyone can top the grizzliness of the Kurgan... That was an awesome villain, even if some of the castle scenes seemed comical, in present time. He was great

Sorry, my mistake, I thought you were referring to the film. Still, I agree with you. POTU is an amazing song and it definitely deserves to be a hit! :D
