Ryan Reynolds Confirmed For Lead In ‘Highlander’ Remake? Not So Fast…
  |  @   |  

Back in May it was reported that Ryan Reynolds had entered into chats to take on the lead role of Connor MacLeod in the planned remake of Highlander being directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

Not much has been heard since, but a couple of days ago word scattered around the ‘net seemed to indicate that Reynolds had officially signed on for the role. Some outlets reported it while many others did not, giving the news that unstable vibe.

The news was first broke by The Tracking Board (via JoBlo), but according to The Playlist, a much more reliable source, we shouldn’t read too much into it.

People close to the project told The Playlist that while yes, Reynolds has had talks for the job, nothing has been made official yet. Still, let’s not fool ourselves: none of us would be at all surprised to discover that Reynolds has indeed be locked in for the role.

My advice to everyone wondering what’s really going on would be if you hear that Reynolds is the new MacLeod in the Highlander remake (I can’t even see that title without hearing stop-motion Lindsay Lohan scream “There can be only one!”—thanks, Robot Chicken), take it with a heap of caution until better confirmation comes along.


  1. I love Highlander. Why are they ripping it off?!
