Juan Carlos Fresnadillo Departs Highlander Movie Remake; Ryan Reynolds Still Attached

Body

4373 Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) has apparently departed the Highlander movie remake due to creative differences.

Fresnadillo already bowed out of helming The Crow remake to do the new Highlander; however, it's said that Fresnadillo and Summit couldn't come to an agreement after having worked on the film for a year.

Deadline says they had differing views on the film and finally agreed to disagree, with no specifics mentioned.

It is said that Summit wants the new Highlander to follow the original, which starred Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish warrior, battling it out against the barbarian, Kurgan, played by Clancy Brown. Sean Connery also starred as the mentor to Lambert's character.

I thought the first Highlander was pretty great, in addition to the Adrian Paul spinoff series (now on Netflix), and I agree with Deadline as they noted the subsequent movies "sucked."

Hopefully Summit does do it right, but I'm not sold on Ryan Reynolds, who is still attached to play Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod.
