Ryan Reynolds drops out of Highlander

Jun 18 2013, 1:18pm CDT | by

Ryan Reynolds has dropped out of the upcoming 'Highlander' re-make.

The actor was set to play immortal Scottish warrior Connor McLeod in the new version of the 1986 action film, but has walked away from the project just months after '28 Weeks Later' director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo also quit.

Backers Summit Entertainment are said to be back to square one with the movie, searching for both a lead actor and director.

Fresnadillo apparently left due to ''creative differences'' with the studio in November after a year of working on the movie. Producers Neal Moritz and Peter Davis had vowed to find a replacement as soon as possible, but no-one has yet been appointed.

The project has been in the pipeline for a number of years, with Justin Lee was cast as the original lead in 2009. He parted ways with the project in August 2011 to star in 'Fast and Furious 6'.

The original film, starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery, was a cult hit, although its 1991 sequel 'Highlander II: The Quickening' was a box office bomb.

Ryan, 36, is said to be concentrating on other projects, including starring opposite Jeff Bridges in Universal's supernatural film 'R.I.P.D' and upcoming thriller 'Selfless'.

Premiere Of Open Road Films' "End Of Watch" - Red Carpet
Our first look at the crime thriller Nightcrawler featured star Jake Gyllenhaal going through a few permutations of a job pitch to an unseen person — and despite that potentially dull setup, it was a strange, riveting piece of film thanks to Gyllenhaal’s performance. Now there’s a longer Nightcrawler trailer that shows us a lot more of Gyllenhaal’s character as he combs the nighttime streets of LA looking for lu ...

Someone Has Taken Ryan Reynolds’ Daughter in The Captive Trailer

Jul 11 2014 10:38am CDT | Source: beyond hollywood

Ryan Reynolds Attends 'El Hormiguero' Tv Show
Ryan Reynolds is not quite like Liam Neeson’s character in “Taken” here. He’s more of an average Joe who doesn’t have a unique set of skills, skills that make him a nightmare for people like the ones that took his daughter. But hey, it’s really cold up there near the US-Canada border in Atom Egoyan’s “The Captive” (originally titled “Queen of the Night”) so you can imagine he won’t be running around the country karate chopping people in the neck. Unfortunately. Take a loo ...

Just as the soccer World Cup has made begun in Brazil, we've come to the end of our Moviepilot Green Lantern fan casting... world cup... event.
