Ryan Reynolds officially cast in “Highlander”?

Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern

Posted by on

There can only be one… but now there are two.

We had previously heard rumors that Ryan Reynolds was being eyed to star in Lionsgate’s upcoming “Highlander” remake, but now The Tracking Board is saying that the “Green Lantern” star has officially landed the role. Of course, that should be taken with a grain of salt, but the website said negotiations took about a month but ended up with Reynolds being our new Conner MacLeod.

The movie was previously made in 1986, with Christopher Lambert playing MacLeod. The fantasy action flick has earned itself a cult following in the years after its release and has spawned sequels, a TV series and now this film. It seems like the franchise is just the latest sort-of successful project to be chosen by Hollywood to be rehashed and remade, though we’ll have to find a suitable replacement for Sean Connery in the upcoming flick (if there even is one).

“Highlander” tells the story of a race of immortal warriors who have battled throughout the ages. It takes place in both the past and present at a time when the conflict has finally reached its climax. It’s become best known for the film’s tagline, “There can only be one.” Of course, as we pointed out earlier, that’s kind of ironic since there have been so many different iterations of this story,

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is directing the “Highlander” remake with Neal Moritz and Peter Davis acting as producers. Fresnadillo is also in negotiations to pen the script. We’ll consider Reynolds’s involvement officially official when we get the word from Lionsgate. No word yet on when it will hit theaters.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
