movies Ryan Reynolds exits 'Highlander' reboot

9 posts in this topic

Ryan Reynolds has departed Summit?s Highlander reboot. This leaves the picture without either a lead actor or a director, as Juan Carlos Fresnadillo exited last year citing creative differences. Producers Neal Moritz and Peter Davis had been searching for a replacement director with Reynolds waiting in the wings. This comes as a clean slate of sorts with the studio now able to search for a new leading man and a compatible director. As The Wrap reports, Reynolds would have played ?Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish swordsman forced to confront the Kurgan, a brutal barbarian who lusts for the fabled ?Prize.?? Reynolds will next be heard voicing the lead character in DreamWorks Animation?s Turbo, followed by a live-action role opposite Jeff Bridges in R.I.P.D., opening the same week.

as weird as its sound, I prefer the Highlander TV series (featuring Adrian Paul) than the movies.

This is good news, I couldn't have believed Ryan Reynolds as Connor.

I like Ryan Reynolds but he seemed like an odd choice for that kind of movie. So for the best, maybe?

Absolutely agree. I can't see Reynolds in a role like this, he is more of a comedy/rom-com type of actor.. Perhaps he realised that too.

Same here. This may be a decent film now.
