RYAN REYNOLDS IS THE NEW "HIGHLANDER"? SAM CLAFLIN, EMILY WATSON, MATTHEW GOODE IN "BELLE"! TRAILER FOR "SKYFALL" JAMES BOND WITH DANIEL CRAIG, JUDI DENCH, RALHP FIENNES, JAVIER BARDEM

Now since even my own private films from the 90's might get their remake in Hollywood :)) it's no surprise that the legendary sf saga 
HIGHLANDER will get a reboot too. Well, if TOTAL RECALL, JUDGE DREDD and ROBOCOP are getting new versions, why not this one as well? We already know that the reboot is in the hands of director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo from 28 WEEKS LATER, but the latest update is that Ryan Reynolds is the prime candidate for the lead role currently. If you remember, the fantasy adventure follows Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish swordsman who must sever the head of a brutal barbarian in order to become the last of his kind. He was originally played by Christopher Lambert and then by Adrian Paul in a TV show. Ryan Reynolds is rather busy these days, since he has to play a superhero in DEADPOOL, then another superhero in GREEN LANTERN 2, then a detective fighting against the undead in R.I.P.D. and he is also landing his voice in next year's animated epic THE CROODS.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Here's another interesting period project: according to "ScreenDaily" gorgeous actress  Gugu Mbatha-Raw from TOUCH TV show will take the lead role in BELLE playing a mixed-race woman raised as an aristocratic lady in 18th century England. Belle’s cousin will be played
by "Cosmopolis" star Sarah Gadon, while rising star Sam Claflin (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, PILLARS OF THE EARTH, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN) will play the love interest. But that's not all since the rest of the cast is equally amazing: Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, Miranda Richardson and Mathew Goode are also on board in supporting roles.

SKYFALL TRAILER
And here's something special for you today when it comes to trailers: the first clip for new James Bond film titled SKYFALL! Ready to premiere this November in
cinemas around the world, the movie will see Bond’s loyalty to M being tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. Playing James Blond again, Daniel Craig will have to square off with the villainous Silva (played by Javier Bardem), and the cast also includes Ralph Fiennes (it is rumoured that he might replace Judi Dench as the main boss in the later sequels), Ben Whishaw (who will play the new and very young Q who supplies Bond with all his gadgets). At estimated shocking $200 million in the budget, the film was directed by Sam Mendes.

  1. Ryan has certainly turned out nicely hasn't he. I remember when he first started acting and he seemed like a scrawny overgrown boy. Not anymore! I liked the movie Highlander but I didn't like the series. I'll give this movie a chance though.

    Belle looks interesting and has a good cast.

    I still can't get used to Craig as 007. Bond just can't be a blonde, he can't be. His eyes are good for the part, but overall he misses. I've tried to like him, but I can't. I'll see this on Netflix when it comes out and watch it for Judy. It should make back it's money.

    1. the only thing I liked in the TV show was the blond girl, playing his wife, and the blond guy, playing his sidekick :)
      I think Bond can be Blond, but not with such a face. He just doesn't have a refined ellegant face, but a very harsh one, and plus he has a charisma of an English country shepherd.

    2. That hits the nail right on the head and he looks like the back end of a shepherd as well. There really has been no other Bond for me after Sean. He's supporting the referendum too. Craig Ferguson won't do it and that really ticks me off. He says it's none of his business because he doesn't live there anymore. He's become an American and that's more important to him than his homeland? Disgusting.

    3. disgusting indeed. I love Sean for supporting independance. Wish we had such a star to support the independence of my own Vojvodina. Have you heard that yesterday the forces of radical evil have won presidential elections in Serbia? The nationalist candidate has won thanks to votes in southern Serbian, even though he lost with almost ten percent from the democratic candidate here in my Vojvodina. I so want to leave the country right now :(

  4. The original Highlander was one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Sigh.
    Not sure I like Reynolds for the role in a remake, even with those fabulous abs. He's just too boyish for me.

    And hello James Blond. Welcome back. :))

    1. it's true, he isn't really capable of playing serious roles, although I did once watch him as a villain in some strange horror and he was rather believable.

  5. I have watched the original Highlander and I don't think RR will cut it ~

    And Daniel is very good as James Bond ~ Tougher and yet more human to me (with the back story of his life) ~ Thanks for the trailer, it was too short :-(

  11. I'm a big fan of the original highlander movie and I'm not too sure about Ryan Reynolds playing the part. He seems more just like eye candy for the ladies than a top notch actor, but that's just my opinion. Skyfall looks really good, I don't know if it will be able to top Casino Royale though.

  13. I am a fan of Ryan Reynolds for his comedies, I haven't seen him in anything serious yet. I didn't go see Buried because it looked it would be boring. I am a huge fan of Highlander (There Can Be Only One) and I'm not sure how he'll do in it. I like him in Green Lantern but that had humor, I hope they don't try to put humor in Highlander...

    1. he had some horror in which he played a husband who moves into some strange house with his wife and her kid. He was rather serious in that one.
      We did love the music in HIGHLANDER :)

    2. I love the music in Highlander!! Now it's going through my head =)

  14. I'm not so sure about Ryan Reynolds taking on the role of Connor MacLeod. I loved the original Highlander and Christopher Lambert had such a wonderful charisma in it.

    1. he did, especially since he has that French accent of his :)

    2. Yeah, I wasn't going to mention the accent since he was supposed to be playing a Scottsman ;)

  15. Dear Lord no new Highlander. Don't they know there can only be one?

  21. I am quite up for a Highlander Reboot.

    But how will play the spaniard with a scottish accent?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'm guessing they will change the story a bit, since there's no way Ryan could have a Scottish accent :)

  22. Figures they won't let the remakes die, But I always liked Reynolds, so we shall see at least. Even though there should be only one. As number 2 was one of the worst movies ever.

    1. Allanis Morisette also liked him, which is a thing I will never understood even if I get to live three more lives :)

  23. I love the Highlander movie and TV show!! (the main character on the TV show was Duncan McLeod and Connor McLeod, as played by the same actor from the movie, guess stared in the first episode of the TV show!) But I don't think Ryans right for the role! Not harsh enough in the looks department!

    They're making a Green Lantern 2? owch!

    1. Green Lantern 2 is in plan, but I'm not sure it was officially announced :) I liked the first one, one of the very few super hero films which I liked.

  24. I LOVED Green Lantern and I can't wait for the sequel. And I was a huge fan of Highlander as well. Ryan could be an excellent candidate. :) He's got the looks.

    That is wonderful about Belle. Such a marvelous cast. :) Not that into the Bond flicks. Figures they'd take out a woman and replace her with a man, though. Judi was the best M ever.

    1. the looks and the abs :) A sword would look good on him.
      I also like the idea of Belle, especially with that lovely cast. I'm not the one to miss anything with Matthew Goode and Sammy Claflin :)

  25. Unfortunately Ryan reynolds doesn't have those killer eyes like Christopher Lambert (that is his name, right? the previous Highlander), I love his eyes
