We knew he was THE ONE!
Ryan Reynolds has officially accepted Lionsgate's offer to become Connor MacLeod in the Highlander reboot.
He'll star as one of the last Scottish swordsman fighting other warriors for complete immortality and he's gonna look damn sexy while doing it!
Since Deadpool and The Green Lantern didn't really pan out, this will be RyRy's THIRD stab at becoming the face of a successful franchise. He's SUCH a talented and hard working actor, so we're crossing our fingers that this works out for him.
His pretty face is in qualified hands too. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, the guy who helmed the impressive horror sequel 28 Weeks Later, is directing.
That's a solid combo, don't U think?
We can't wait to see how much Ryan's swordsmanship has improved since X-Men Origins: Wolverine!

Eh! We weren't really feeling him for this, so no great loss!
Bradley Cooper had reportedly signed up for the title role in director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's remake of The Crow, but apparently now, he has dropped the project due to a prior scheduling conflict, and will now instead appear in David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook and the upcoming adaptation of Paradise Lost!

Back in October, we heard that Mark Wahlberg was up for the lead role in The Crow reboot, which had The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen's Stephen Norrington attached to direct…at the time.
Now, we've learned that Norrington is no longer attached to the project, and instead 28 Weeks Later's Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will now direct.
We've also learned that a new writer is reportedly being brought in. The previous draft of the script was written by Nick Cave
& The Bad Seeds.
This has really become a completely different project. It's like they're rebooting the reboot!
…Guess we probs won't be seeing Marky Mark in this one anymore.
How do U feel about all the recent changes to The Crow reboot? Do U think the 28 Weeks Later director is right for the project?
