Ryan Reynolds Exits HIGHLANDER Reboot

     June 17, 2013

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.
