Morning Roundup: Connor MacLeod Might Regenerate Into Ryan Reynolds

Though we were told by Sir Sean Connery “there can be only one,” there have been a whole gaggle of immortals running through the insane Highlander series. Now, we hear the reboot might include Ryan Reynolds as Connor MacLeod. We’re not sure Christopher Lambert approves...

The rest of your daily offsite links are sung to the tune of your favorite song by Queen.

Highlights include:

  1. First teaser for Green Arrow on the CW.
  2. Jones—the cat from Alien—tells his side of the story.
  3. R2-D2 loses his mind, goes on a rampage.

The Kurgan agrees with Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez that there can be only one so let's keep it that way.


PS - Only Sean Connery could get away with being a Spainard with a Scottish accent. ;-)

Agree. There is only one Highlander, which is still enjoyable and immersive, IMO. And resonating, too.

I can always rewatch the original, so, why bother with a new one? I don't think that the world of 80s are that far that we cannot relate characters living in that time. Connery, Brown, Kamen, Queen and Lambert, they make the movie enchanting. There are remakes and reboots, that are justified - i.e. remaking King Kong with CGI-orgy -, and there are these attempts. They might can create better CGI for quickening, but the original had such an atmosphere...

...partially, maybe, because it was original.

@Kato: But wasn't Ramirez actually Egyptian? Who knows, maybe the ancient egyptian accent is indistinguishable from the scottish accent.
