Holy Mary, Mother of sweet awesomeness!!
Lionsgate will reboot the Highlander franchise and they’re very close to asking Ryan Reynolds to lead Clan MacLeod.
As you already know, there can be only one perfect candidate and we're pretty sure it's RyRy.
Reynolds is buff, charming, and we’ve already seen him wield a sword as Deadpool.
For those of you uninitiated, Highlander tells the story of an immortal race of warriors who live secretly amongst the humans and occasionally they have sword fights that end in decapitation!
We have no clue whether the film will be a reboot or a sequel to the TV series and movies, but we DO know Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is set to direct.
The Spaniard made a few solid films already, including 28 Weeks Later and Intacto.
We cannot wait for them to get to work on this one!!
We will most def keep U posted on ALL the developing deets!
