‘The Can Be Only One‘, proclaimed Christopher Lambert’s immortal head-lopping hero Connor McLeod in Russell Mulcahy’s 1986 actioner Highlander (probably best known for Queen’s memorable soundtrack as well as that rubbish television spin-off series). Well, Intruders director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has said about the remake, ‘It ain’t gonna be me’ and has now officially vacated the project citing that old chestnut ‘creative differences’.
Fresnadillo has been guiding the film to production since he was confirmed very early in the year. Ryan Reynolds, who only came on board to play sword-swinging McLeod recently, is still set for the aforementioned lead. There’s no word yet on who will be taking over but with Fast & Furious frequenter Justin Lin serving as an executive-producer and work almost complete on the sixth in the series, don’t be surprised to see him rescue the project for Summit Entertainment.
