{TB EXCLUSIVE} RYAN REYNOLDS IS THE ONE FOR “HIGHLANDER”

By:

After roughly a month of negotiations, has officially been cast in the lead role for HIGHLANDER. Reynolds will play Connor 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.

Reynolds started his film career in comedy, most notably playing the titular college slacker in “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder” and a sarcastic waiter in the cult hit “Waiting”. His career accelerated after a small but memorable turn as Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” He has since starred as the superhero Hal Jordan in “Green Lantern” and played opposite Denzel Washington in CIA thriller “Safe House.” He is currently voicing lead characters in “Turbo” and “The Croods”, both for DreamWorks Animation.

  1. ‘Reynolds started his film career in comedy’

    Bzzzz, wrong answer!  Ryan Reynolds started his movie career in drama, with his first movie being “Ordinary Magic”, then went on to do comedy with his second film “Life During Wartime”

    • Sorry Michael, but he started before that on TV comedy, while he was still a kid, so it’s still correct the statement.. sort of. LOL ;)

      • TV is not film, so therefore the my statement is correct!  And, “Hillside” was not a comedy, it was supposed to be like “Degrassi Junior High”/”Degrassi High”.

  2. Why is remaking Highlander a good idea and why cast Reynolds who lacks strong box office appeal?

  3. oh what the fuck, for a man who really wants to do deadpool he sure goes out of his way to keep it from happening

  4. Connor, not Conner.

  5. “[...]Ryan Reynolds has officially been cast in the lead role for Highlander.”

    I’m never gonna watch this movie…

  6. Um, The Proposal was hardly a box office failure.  Maybe worth mentioning?

  7. Like he could ever replace Adrian Paul.  Come on…….
