After Ryan Reynolds has signed on to the main role, there has been no news on the upcoming Highlander remake. That is, none until today.
Summit Entertainment has announced that director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has left the project. Fresnadillo left the project due to creative differences leading to an amicable split. Ryan Reynolds is still attached to play the lead. Fresnadillo is known for directing 28 Weeks Later and Intruders.
I'm not really excited about this project to begin with, but I hope now that Fresnadillo is gone, Summit will get a better director. Fresnadillo is an awful director, his sequel to 28 Days Later was horrendous and I hear Intruders is even worse. He would have made horrible decisions with this film and I'm hoping they get a better director attached to this.
