Is This Something? – Highlander Reboot

Is This Something? – Highlander Reboot

It is reasonable to assume that John Wick director’s Highlander reboot just vaulted out of development hell.

Henry Cavill is in.

Any ideas who should play the Kurgen?

    There is only one Kurgan. No one can best Clancy Brown. No one.

      He is a tough one to replace. Here’s a weird thought experiment. What if Henry Cavil were cast as The Kurgan? If the original script idea is followed he would actually be a good choice. He is an actor who can project personal pain well and he’s physically imposing too.

    It’s gotten so that my default reaction to new of any “reboot” is distaste and distrust. It is almost inevitably the work of woke mediocrities — midgets trying to elevate themselves on the shoulders of giants.

    oh come now.
    it is, of course, inarguable that casting for the Kurgan will be very important.
    but the critical casting question will be:
    where shall they find a Spaniard with a thick Scots brogue?

    Well, clearly Natalie Portman. If she can be Thor, then she can be the Kurgan.

      It’s even money that Salma Hayek will be playing Rameriez.

      Is Brie Larson unavailable?

    Brie Larson will play the Kurgan and people will clap…

    Like Cavill but the endless regurgitating of ideas starts to grate, rather have been these last 15 years.

    I hope the Kurgan is finally played by someone capable of giving the character the kind of gravitas any reboot will deserve.
    A sassy, very overweight black woman with a lisp would be perfect.
    Rameriez should be a Latina lesbian who can drop kick a knight in full plate armour for a one hit fatality.

    But seriously – fuck remakes. Fuck them all. No modern studio is capable of producing anything worth watching unless you like to point and laugh.
    They should be remaking the worst financial and critical failures of the 50s – 70s, as at least then they can be true to their source material.

    We know Cavil will be in the movie. We don’t know that he’s playing the immortal Scotsman Macleod.

    Hypothesis: Cavil is the evil Kurgan. (HC makes a great villain.) He will battle against the PLUCKY IMMORTAL BIPOC GIRL HEROINE.

    If you’re cringing it’s because you know that’s what’s going to happen.

    On one hand I want to believe, on the other hand I expect with near certainty that the sword fight choreography is going to suck in hollywood ballet style. And another big disadvantage of reboots is of course that the basic plot is already known. So i will be as with anything produced by western media: wait for a review from a trusted source.

    For awhile, there was talk of Ryan Rynolds as Highlander. Glad that never happened. Highlander is probably my all time favorite movie (more about seeing it at a formative age and coming back to it over and over) and I never want to see a reboot. The series, maybe. but never another just “Highlander” movie. That being said, Henry Cavill should play the Kurgan.

    Henry Cavill will be the Kurgen, some woman will be the highlander. Its a love story with kick arse chick.

    Oh and she will have to kill him at the end and walk away into the sunset being brave. Before the internet, this was called Mills & Boon.

    I could tolerate Jason Momoa as the Kurgan.

    The Kurgen should play The Kurgen.

    Lots of jokes (I think?) from people saying Cavil should be cast as The Kurgan but I actually think this is a great idea. I just hope they cast an actual Scotsman as Connor and an actual Spaniard as Ramirez. Those accents in the original were so ludicrously distracting (even though it is one of my all time favorite movies.)
