Nope, really can't see Reynolds pulling off the Scots accent or the weird 'everywhere' accent of the 21st century MacLeod, or the air of mystique. Need a more rugged, less American actor for the role.

Ummm dude no one in the original was Scottish. Sorry that's wrong there was one fella, Sean Connery but through the mastery of casting he was an Egyptian Spaniard called Ramirez. Considering Lambert couldn't speak a word of English let alone do it a Scottish accent I think Reynolds is as good as anyone else to fill the kilt. Course if this goes ahead I may lose my mind considering they've done the highlander thing to death! Cursed immortal asses that they are!!! Sure accent doesn't matter anyway since *spoiler* they're all aliens anyway according to the second one. You'd think after that steller idea they'd call it a day. Nope, 3,4,5 later 2 cartoons n such... Still going on. Lets face it if Halle berry is the next highlander who'd be surprised. Hollywood has gone mental.

Chris Hemsworth would be a better shout imo.

It would be nice to have an actual Scottish actor playing the role for a change but if not, it's no big deal.

EDIT: I wish people would stop changing the titles of the threads, there's no reason for it. It seems to happen more often in Movie News and the Reviews forum. Anyone know why?

MacLeod goes to Fassbender hands down. For the kurgan i can see Mads Mikkelsen or Tom Hardy. Ewan McGregor Daniel Craig for Ramirez.

For my money, I'd go with James Mcavoy for McCloud (you know, a scotsman!) Antonio Banderas for Ramirez. Whether there's a Kurgan or not remains to be seen, just please don't cast a wrestler ffs....

I think Butler would be ace - they really have to go for a Scottish actor this time around, surely! Banderas is also a great shout for Ramirez, it seems like this one is casting itself! The Kurgan - that's really tricky because Clancy Brown was so brilliant, pretty much stealing the movie from Lambert and even Schean himself.

Why not Ryan Reynolds? With Antonio Banderas as Ramirez. Though the first film isn't in such a great need for a remake/reboot, the poor sequels certainly are!

Scottish actor please... there's plenty to go around... well three: Butler, McAvoy, and McGregor! And I wouldn't mind it if an Irishman, Fassbender, would do it. But Ryan Reynolds?! BARF! And I agree with a couple of the comments above about how the sequels haven't been all that great, actually they've been shite, but Reynolds isn't really gonna help the franchise... imo, it'll prob sink it completely. oi

This would be a total miscast, Reynolds seems a random choice and there are much better actors out there who would suit the role. Christian Bale would be an interesting choice!!!

my first thought was Gerard Butler for the role too - but Chris Hemsworth is a good choice too. i like Ryan too - maybe he could pull off the role
