The Immortals do not live as a united people on a territory of their own, but are scattered around the world and across history. The only bond between them are oral traditions called the Rules transmitted from teacher to student. The creator of the Rules is unknown. The Rules are never enumerated, like a body of laws, but they are quoted according to the circumstances. They are taught to newborn Immortals by Immortal mentors called First Teachers (see below). The main Rules are:
-No Immortal may fight on Holy Ground, no matter who regards it as Holy
-Immortal combat is one on one only — no outside interference
-Mortals must not learn about Immortals — if you are killed, you move on
-When only a few are left, all Immortals will feel drawn to a distant land, to fight for the Prize — this is the time of the Gathering
-In the end, there can be only one — the last one will receive all the power of all the Immortals who ever lived

People should just leave Highlander alone.

I just googled "highander reboot," and all I came away with was a warning not to hold my breath.
"As far as I know… I’ve been working on this movie for quite a while. I’m still involved in it, very much so. In fact, I just talked about it yesterday with Lionsgate. You know, there are going to be some surprises there, for sure. I’m going to say that it’s very close to the original story, but there will be surprises. The characters you love in the first movie are back. There are definitely some changes, for sure." Nicholas Troyan
We haven’t heard any real news about the Highlander reboot since over a year ago. Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Dave Bautista was rumored for the lead villain role, Immortal Kurgan, played by Clancy Brown in the original Highlander. Perhaps it was nothing more than a rumor or a deal was never struck.
Currently no actors that we know of are attached to the film, but according to Nicolas-Troyan, this Highlander reboot, which we’ve been writing about since 2008, is still alive.
Heather: Don't see me, Connor - let me die in peace. Where are we?
Connor MacLeod: We're in the Highlands, where else? Running down a mountainside. The sun is shining. It's not cold. You've got your sheepskins on, and the boots I made for you. Good night, my bonny Heather.
Kate MacLeod: Stealing's wrong. Lying's wrong. Killing's wrong. What you did goes well beyond wrong.
Duncan MacLeod: Fine I deserve that but I want a chance to make it right.
Kate MacLeod: You want to make it right? Then give me back the ability to have children, to grow old with the man I love. How about anything that resembles a normal life? And you took it all away from me.
