Your New ‘Highlander’ Has Been Named!
There can be only one: And it’s Ryan Reynolds. Ryan has scored the lead in a remake of “Highlander”.
The original came out in 1986, and starred Christopher Lambertas an immortal warrior fighting villains throughout time. Sean Connery was his Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Clancy Brownplayed his arch-enemy.
Sure, the original was a little cheesy, but in a GOOD way. And it was popular enough to spawn FOUR sequels, two TV series, an animated series, an animated movie and numerous novels and comic books.
It also had a KILLER soundtrack fueled by songs from the Queen album ‘A Kind of Magic’.
Of course, Queen’s soundtrack MASTERPIECE was “Flash Gordon“. But that’s another story.
