Juan Carlos Fresnadillo bails on Highlander, who will direct Ryan Reynolds?

Just when it's off the ground, the forces that be pull you back down...

After feeling pretty confident with the hire of Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, word is the Spanish filmmaker has decided to exit Summit's HIGHLANDER reboot. As you know, many people have been attached to the flick, including Ryan Reynolds (who still is) to star. Word is the decision wasn't a bitter one, but that ultimately the vision between the studio and director became too disparate to make it work. Of course, Fresnadillo also left THE CROW reboot, so who knows if this guy will be happy remaking other people's work.

In the HIGHLANDER reboot, Reynolds will play Connor MacLeod, a Highlander who discovers he is one of a dwindling group of immortals who wander the earth and kill each other in combat for the final “Prize” – mortality.

Thing is, how long can Reynolds be attached without a director. My guess is a replacement is found soon to keep the star aligned. Remember, Justin Lin was also long attached, but he'll simply exec-produce at this point.

So let's just open it up and help Summit all we can. Point blank: who should direct HIGHLANDER with Ryan Reynolds in the title role?

Extra Tidbit: I bet Reynolds ain't too pissed if the movie isn't made. Why go to cold ass Scotland and leave Blake Lively's (above) bed.

The only person who should be dropping out of this is Ryan Reynolds. I just don't think he works as Connor. If you thought Christopher Lambert's Scottish accent was bad...

It sounds cool.

I do enjoy "Highlander" and even the silly sequel. But if they truly want to remake it. They truly need an coherent script. I felt the "Highlander" movies were style over subtance movies.
