  • Highlander - A fan edit in the works.

    Hi everyone, I've been on the form for awhile now and thought about sharing something that I'm currently working on.

    I call it: Highlander - The Complete Cut

    It is a fan edit of the film the runs 4 minutes longer than the Internatioal / Director’s Cut.

    At 1:59:58!

    I will send a list of what has been added to it and what work it needs to be done on it.

    Footage added/cut


    Additional 4 minutes added


    Added Scenes do not have sound, except two


    The other scenes without sound have Music over them from the film except for one scene.


    -Scenes Added-


    -Extended Wrestling Match Footage (Music Princess Of The Universe: an Early Master Version was added to it)


    -The Scene where the Cop Bedsoe, Spills Coffee on himself from The US Theatrical Cut was added back in (vhs Source, hope to get a better quality version of that shot for the final edit)


    -A Shot from the Original 35mm Teaser trailer of Kurgan saying “It was destined that the board would be cleared for the real players.” During the scene where Connor and the Kurgan are in the church was added in (audio and quality is slightly rough, but can be suitable since it's the only one I found)


    -Connor and Rachel's Extended Talk was added in (no music or sound) needs voice actors for Connor and Rachel


    -Extended Factory Roof Fight scene Added (with the Factory Roof Fight Music in its complete form added over) needs Film sfx added into the shots


    -Alternate sfx shot of The Kurgan's headless body was added in


    -The Line “I want to go Home.” After Connor receives the prize from the US Theatrical Cut was added back in


    -The Extended Ending was added back in (with the Prize Music track playing over it) needs voice actors for Connor and Brenda


    -also needs some color correction, but I'm not very skilled at that so someone may have to take over that.

        This project sounds utterly awesome!

        I've seen most of the extended footage as its on numerous Blu-Ray and UHD releases of Highlander. It was only recently I found out about the 'Bedsoe spilling coffee on himself' and the Kurgan/Church dialogue 'it was destined that the board would be cleared for the real players' so having those scenes reintroduced into the film would be an absolute dream.

        From what I remember, there was a full unabridged version of Highlander (with all of the scenes mentioned + audio) that was shown only once in Egypt of all places back in 2011? Some sort of 70mm cut. I think this is it: https://www.in70mm.com/presents/1963...nder/index.htm

          You are correct. It was at the Egyptian Theatre in 2011, and it vanshised. I recently got the best quality version of the Bedsoe scene and added it to my new cut. Just need now sound effects and voice over for those scenes.

            Sounds great. I'm on board with this.

                Update:


                I got better resolution footage of the Dialogue church scene from the rare trailer. And noticed a few seconds of footage I've not seen I'm my edit. It is during the Factory fight scene with Kurgan and Connor.


                And now the cut length is


                2:00:03!


                And I added voice audio of an AI tts Christopher Lambert voice for his lines. Some are spot on, but some don't sound quite right sadly.


                So now I need someone to voice Rachel & Brenda. And sfx for the scenes.
