Congratulations, World! Ryan Reynolds is Your ‘Highlander’

Ryan Reynolds

According to The Tracking Board, Ryan Reynolds has nailed down the theoretically coveted role of Conner MacLeod for the reboot of The Highlander being directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. Insert your own “there can be only one” joke here.

So, okay.

The truth is that mustering up any form of excitement for this news or this project is just too much work. It’s the movie equivalent of room temperature tap water. Of course, I can’t wait to hear Reynolds’ Scottish accent attempt, but other than that, what is there to care about? Is this really what you get rewarded with for making a flick as imaginative as Intacto? Or for showing excellent acting range in The Nines? Not to sound anti-mainstream, but there can’t be anything left in the Highlander well. There just can’t.
