Ryan Reynolds may be The Highlander

— Posted by Ryan

It has been reported that Ryan Reynolds is the front-runner for the next Highlander film courtesy of Variety. It is unclear whether or not an offer has been made but reports say that both sides are very interested.

Ryan Reynolds has emerged as the front-runner to topline the reboot, and though it’s unclear whether an actual offer has been made, sources tell Variety that both sides are in talks and are very interested in working together. Insiders add that Reynolds is weighing other offers and that could still pursue another project.

Ryan Reynolds is becoming known for his sarcastically funny wit but how well will this work in the Highlander franchise? I know he can play serious roles but it seems as though we always see a comedic side in the roles that he plays. Even playing Hal Jordan in Green Lantern we caught brief moments of comedy that I feel were not fitting to the role of Hal Jordan. What does everyone think, can Ryan Reynolds be accepted as part of the Macleod clan?

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.

    Gerard Butler for Mcleod for me, good in action roles and more importantly he’s from the Highlands of Scotland so the accents there from the start!

    No, he does not need to be the highlander get somebody new a fresh in there i’m tired of seeing the same actors as all these different characters. Why ruin a possible great movie with him?

    Always thought Christopher Lambert brought some dry humor to the role which Ryan does well but these are bigs shoes to fill!
