Last November, director Carlos Fresnadillo’s left the Highlander reboot. Now, Ryan Reynolds, the man slated to be the new Connor MacLeod, has walked as well. This leaves Summit Entertainment in a bit of a predicament and the Highlander franchise back in pre-production limbo. Of course, this may also help their chances of finding a new director as they will get to make their own choice of star. My take on this, while I’m disappointed that in the loss of Ryan Reynolds, maybe we should go with a lesser known try to carry the film on its own, without the name of the actor.
What are your thoughts? Any suggestions on who Summit should get next?
