A role tragically cut short after the Superman star exited the Netflix show, fans will be very pleased to hear he’s about to make a return to the world of action fantasy.
Rumours have abounded for the last few years that the 40-year-old was circling a Highlander reboot.
Christopher Lambert’s 1986 classic followed an immortal Scottish swordsman from his 16th century origins to the present day.
Just a few months ago it was confirmed that a new version starring Cavill is now going ahead at Lionsgate, helmed by John Wick quadrilogy director Chad Stahelski.
And now the Hollywood star himself has spoken out on the hotly-anticipated new project.
Cavill, who is promoting his new spy movie Argylle told Collider: “The training is about to begin in earnest. It’ll be a very long training process, and I’m very excited to get into it. There’s only so much I can tell you at the moment. I want to keep everything under wraps for as long as possible.”
The Highlander reboot is expected to start shooting in 2024, presumably for a 2025 release.
