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'.

‘Amityville: The Awakening’ Trailer: It’s Not You, It’s the House

Aug 22 2014 3:43pm CDT | Source: screen rant

Whatever you do, don’t move into a house where the previous owner murdered their family under mysterious circumstances. You would think that characters in horror films would’ve picked up on this lesson by now; or, at the least, perform far more rigorous background checks on their newly-acquired real estate than they generally do. Either way, that’s not what happens in the upcoming Amityville: The ...

First Trailer for 'Amityville: The Awakening' Brings the Same Scares

Aug 22 2014 2:59pm CDT | Source: First Showing

In what will make a dozen films in the franchise since The Amityville Horror first hit theaters 35 years ago, the first trailer for Amityville: The Awakening has arrived. Since the reboot of the horror series back in 2005 starring Ryan Reynolds, there have been some straight-to-DVD sequels, but now the residential terror is heading back to theaters just after the New Year (a dumping ground for bad horror) thanks to Dimension Films. This time, Jennifer Ja ...

New Trailer: "Amityville: The Awakening"

Aug 22 2014 1:57pm CDT | Source: Dark Horizons

Take the previous "Amityville" remake, reduce the budget and swap out Ryan Reynolds' super abs for a creepy kid hooked up to an EKG and you've essentially got "Amityville: The Awakening," a revisiting of the franchise led by Jennifer Jason Leigh. In this take there's no creepy dad to cause mayhem, instead it's a single mother and her kids (one with severe medical problems) who move into th ...
