There Can Be Only One?
Rumors of a Highlander reboot have been circulating for years now. In theory, this is a reboot I could get behind. Do the story right, planning a trilogy form the beginning. Of course, there are some long odds on this working...
But here's the latest bit of rumor: Ryan Reynolds may be the lead. I can't decide if this is a good thing or not. What do you all think?
I could see this if they go in a slightly different direction and make the story as much a Romance as it is an Action film.
BTW, I'm convinced the real important point here is to make the swordfighting a centerpiece. It not only has to look good, there should be authentic styles, and clever staging. Rehash the hack-and-slash and it's a cheap grab at cashing in on the original idea.
