Ryan Reynolds No Longer Attached To Highlander Reboot


8799 Ryan Reynolds was set to plan Connor MacLeod in the new Highlander, but it's now reported that the actor has exited the reboot.

The Wrap reports that Ryan Reynolds is no longer on board Highlander, with the movie's producers back at square one seeking a director as well.

Recently, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) was due to helm the reboot, but reportedly left the project over creative differences.

The new Highlander has Neal Moritz and Peter Davis on as producers with the most recent script from Noah Oppenheim.

Reynolds departure leaves way for a new director to come on board and choose a new leading man.

Ryan Reynolds recently landed the lead role in Tarsem Singh's sci-fi thriller Selfless, which has a 2014 release.
