Highlander Remake

I just stumbled across this article this morning.  Apparently, they are going to make a new Highlander.  This won't be a continuation of the story, but instead a remake of the first movie.

Ryan Reynolds will play the role of Connor McCleod, which could be a good casting decisions.

Read more about it here (link here).

Personally, I like the idea of the Highlander franchise getting a resurgence.  But a lot of the remakes I have seen lately have fallen way flat of the original (see Footloose, the Karate Kid, etc...), where the plot is verbatim the same but the subtle nuances that made te story work so well have been overlooked. 

Hopefully the Highlander remake will be better than Footloose.  Us Highlander fans desaerve a good movie, and not a cheap copy.
