Juan Carlos Fresnadillo Exits Summit’s ‘Highlander’ Remake

Deadline

When it comes to directors on the movie Highlander, there can be only one. But it won’t be Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. The 28 Weeks Later helmer has exited Summit’s reboot of the film, which still has Ryan Reynolds poised to play the title character. I’m told that his exit is amicable, and that after a year of working on the project, he and Summit could not get past the fact they had differing views of the film, and finally agreed to disagree. Fresnadillo left a remake of The Crow to join Highlander. It’s unclear at the moment whether that is an option, but come Monday, he will be looking for another movie, and Summit will be looking for another Highlander helmer. (Cinema, Highlander (Remake), Juan Carlos Fresnadillo)

I hoping for the best with this movie but as much as I love Ryan Reynolds, I just can't see him as Highlander.
