Ryan Reynolds Confirmed As The Highlander – Geek Mundo

Well I really have no words. Ryan Reynolds is confirmed to play Connor MacLeod in the reboot of the ‘Highlander’. I am really hoping that this will not be a series and the studio will leave it at just one movie . Ryan Reynolds better get his Scottish accent on and popping because I really can’t see him doing one right. I mean does this movie really need to be remade? It’s bad enough ‘Robocop’ is being remade. Is this the future of Hollywood? Doing remakes.

After roughly a month of negotiations, Ryan Reynolds has officially been cast in the lead role for HIGHLANDER. Reynolds will play Conner MacLeod, a Highlander who discovers he is one of a dwindling group of immortals who wander the earth and kill each other in combat for the final “Prize” – mortality.

The remake is set to be helmed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who is also in negotiations to rewrite the script. Neal Moritz and Peter Davis will produce the film. Via Tracking Board
