From the director of Ninja Scroll and Vampire Hunter D comes....Highlander 5???

In revenge, patience is a virtue. And after a millennium, Colin MacLeod doesn't give a damn about virtue.
After four films and two successful television series, you've never seen the Highlander like this. MacLeod returns with a vengeance.in an animated feature-length epic! In the tradition of "Vampire Hunter D" and "Ninja Scroll," anime wizard Yoshiaki Kawajiri brings his unique visual bravura to the immortal "Highlander" franchise. For the first time, the MacLeod katana blade will find itself in the hands of a Japanese master.
In the new tale, the lone warrior Colin travels with the wise-cracking ghost Amergan through the ages searching for the immortal despot Marcus Octavius, who killed his lover on the Celtic plains tens of centuries ago. On his quest, he discovers New York is submerged, and one dominant monolith fortress towers over the seas. Colin can save the survivors, but his sword only hungers for the blood of one man. Despite many lifetimes of training, Colin has failed to vanquish Marcus on the great battlefields of history. Can he finish what he started and stop Marcus? Will Colin lead the people to freedom or become consumed by hate? There can be only one.
Doesn't really sound much like Highlander, but then again maybe that's a good thing.

There's 4 feature films:

Highlander (1986)
Highlander II: The Quickening (1991)
Highlander III: The Sorcerer (1994)
Highlander: Endgame (2000)

The TV pilot was also available on video as a seperate "feature film," which is what you may be thinking of

There's 3 TV series:

Highlander
Highlander: The Animated Series
Highlander: The Raven

I can't find any mention of Highlander: The Owl. Adrian Paul was involved in a TV movie called The Owl, although it's not Highlander related:

A live-action film called Highlander: The Source is in the works and, so far, the only signed actor is Christopher Lambert even though the lead character of that film is supposed to be Duncan.

This animated film sounds like pure rubbish even if it didn't carry the name Highlander. The only film by Yoshiaki Kawajiri that I ever liked was Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust so I'd rather he do a sequel to that.

No. Quentin MacLeod was the character from the animated series. There was also a Ramirez in the animated series but he wasn't the same one from the movies.

When the writers on Project Greenlight said they were working on a Highlander sequel I thought they were joking.
