The Guardian: There can be only one. Joe Dawson: Maybe, but they sure weren't talking about you.
Methos: You trust me? Duncan MacLeod: You'll do.
Duncan MacLeod: [after burying Joe Dawson] I'm done. Methos: Why are you upset MacLeod? Is it because Joe's dead or because you, the great Highlander, couldn't save him? Duncan MacLeod: Go to hell! Methos: So this is the new MacLeod? A man who turns his back on the memory of his friend, his clan? The quiter? Duncan MacLeod: [Duncan punches Methos, draws Reggie's sword] Get up! Cardinal Giovanni: This is Holy Ground! Duncan MacLeod: I don't care! Reggie Weller: [restraining Anna] No. This is what we do. Methos: You know why Joe interfered? Duncan MacLeod: Why? Methos: It wasn't for me. It was for *you*. So you might be the one. And now, you're just gonna piss all over his grave. Well, come on! Duncan MacLeod: Don't hide behind that bullshit, Methos. You wanna blame somebody, blame *yourself*! You got him involved!
- Joel Soisson's version of the script featured Duncan MacLeod living in a gas station in the middle of the desert, next to a run-down airplane. Also in the script, MacLeod smoked, wore cowboy boots and a hat, and had a pet monkey named Connor.
Peter Briggs wrote a version of the script while the project was still at Miramax. Before writing the script, Briggs re-watched all the "Highlander" movies as well as the TV series, then joined the official Highlander message boards (www.highlander-community.com) and researched what fans wanted in a sequel. He kept his identity secret, but was known to be an insider on the project. He soon became one of the most popular and respected members of the board, and remained so even after he was kicked off the project. He revealed his identity well after he was kicked off the project. It was the death of a close friend on the forum, named Eric, that sparked Briggs to finally reveal himself.
An early cut of Highlander: The Source was released in Russia on DVD in February 2007.
Dimension Pictures originally intended to film this movie in Africa. Several early drafts are explicitly set in Africa. It was finally filmed in Lithuania around Vilnius.
The film was shot over three months (October to December) in 2005, and was planned to be released in 2006.
