we have to nuke Hollywood from orbit. it's the only way to be sure there can only be one.  maybe they should remake the second one, but make it good this time.

nothing is sacred anymore...all your favourite films will be next,Raiders of the Lost Ark,Aliens,Star Wars....isnt it time for a Lord of the Rings remake yet???? icon_lol



slightly Off Topic:
funny you mention Highlander,i was watching the trailer for the new Castlevania game(downloaded the trailer from XBL)..and there was  apart in that what made me think of Highlander,and it actually looked like Christopher Lambert at that particular point as well

this is the vid...at about 1 minute 17 when he looks up and says 'i have done questionable things'....reminded me,as though he should of said 'There Can Be Only One'

They've announced who is to be in charge of this: producer Neil Moritz and director Justin Lin.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is now set to direct.

Lame. Ryan Reynolds saying,"There can be only one" makes me a a bit sick.

There are so many better choices out here:
1. Gerald Butler (real Scottish accent)
2. Michael Fassabender
3. Guy Pearce
4. Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy as Kurgan would be cool, and not much of a stretch from Bane.

I approve of Kato's list wholeheartedly.  Every single one of those actors is miles ahead of freakin' Ryan Reynolds.  I thought after Green Lantern perhaps Hollywood would take a break from all things Reynolds.  Sadly, I was mistaken.

...and Hardy as the Kurgan?  Oh hell yeah.

I reckon Michael Shannon as the Kurgan would be a pretty good choice,he plays the main FBI agent in Boardwalk Empire and is to play General Zod in Man of Steel

Edit:Boardwalk empire not Broadwalk icon_confused

 icon_lol Last thing God would be smiling out,if you didn't put that last line


Yeah,lets just say it,we like Ryan Reynolds in some things,but this is not one of the things we wanted from him


Who can play Connor?.......what the hell give it to Sam Worthington,seems he has fallen off the radar of late after his I HAVE TO BE IN EVERY FILM EVER phase a year or two ago

No,give it to Ewan McGregor..okay i am kidding..I have no idea,here's an idea,don't remake it at all Tongue

Haha, that is, if possible, an even worse suggestion than Jaden Smith :-D

But seriously yeah, Nicolas Cage would rock in that role.

I'm likely going to get some hate over this, but I watched the original movie recently and it doesn't stand up too well. Much of it feels very low-budget, and the best part of it is Sean Connery's short role. I think in that respect, a remake would make sense.

As for roles:
Ian McShane as Ramirez
Jason Statham as Connor.

Or for the laugh of it:
Billy Connelly as Ramirez
Peter Dinklage as Connor

I think Lambert should instead play something far more up his alley - like an ancient Asian god of lightning.
