Oh Thank God, Ryan Reynolds Has Left The Highlander Remake

There Can Be Only One

Is there only one person left working on the Highlander remake now? 

The Wrap is reporting Ryan Reynolds is no longer attached to star in the remake of the 80s sword fighting classic, Highlander. Previously, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo decided he’d rather not be involved either. I’m sensing a theme here.

“Summit vowed to move quickly in finding Fresnadillo’s replacement but still hasn’t brought another filmmaker onboard, leaving Reynolds in limbo,” writes The Wrap. “An individual familiar with ‘Highlander’ tells TheWrap that Reynolds’ exit may actually prove beneficial for the project, as a new director will be able to cast a new leading man rather than inherit a previous filmmaker’s decision.”

I guess that makes sense. Competition reality show to pick the new actor by making contestants fight each other with swords? Or should we just try and put this one away in a drawer and pretend it never tried to happen? To be completely honest, putting aside how much I despise 80s remakes, I didn’t think Reynolds was right for this part anyway.
