Oh Gods. Why remake such fun crap?
The franchise’s motto is “there can be only one,” and Lionsgate-Summit seems to have found the man to be the next “Highlander.”
Ryan Reynolds has emerged as the front-runner to topline the reboot, and though it’s unclear whether an actual offer has been made, sources tell Variety that both sides are in talks and are very interested in working together. Insiders add that Reynolds is weighing other offers and that could still pursue another project.
WELL HE HAS DIRECTED ’28 WEEKS LATER’, AND THAT IS ABOUT IT. AND A ‘HIGHLANDER’ REMAKE. GODS, HOPE THEY HAVE EVEN MORE FUN WITH THE ACCENTS THIS TIME AROUND…..
Juan Carlos Fresnadillo signed up to helm the Crow reboot earlier this year and is now reportedly the top choice to direct another re-fashioning of a cult title: Summit’s Highlander remake, which Fast Five helmer Justin Lin is no longer attached to (he officially left the project about a month ago).
