Lionsgate have found their man to lead their remake of the classic '80s sci-fi/fantasy Highlander. Ryan Reynolds has officially signed on to play Conner MacLeod. The planned remake of Highlander once again follows a 'Highlander' who discovers he is one of a dwindling group of immortals who wander the earth & kill each other in combat for the final Prize of immortality. The Tracking Board broke the story. Reynolds had been in negotiations for around a month or so. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is on board to direct with Neal Moritz & Peter Davis producing.
