Tom Cruise Being Courted To Star In HIGHLANDER Reboot

After trying to get a reboot of the classic sci-fi/fantasy flick off the ground a while back with Ryan Reynolds in the lead, the studio have now set their sights on Tom Cruise to play the mentor role (Sean Connery's Ramírez in the original), though he's not entered into talks just yet.


There can be only one! Or, y'know, someone else if they turn you down. The Wrap are reporting that the Highlander reboot is very much back on at Summit Entertainment under first-time director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, and the man they want to fill the shoes of the Sean Connery character from the original film is none other than action movie megastar, Tom Cruise. Apparently things are one-sided for the moment though, with a rep for Cruise telling the site that this project is "one of many that come to him", adding that the actor is "far from talks." So no actual negotiations to speak of, but when Cruise wraps on Mission Impossible 5 it'll be one of many possibilities for him. A supporting role like this wouldn't usually be what Cruise would go for though he has dabbled in the past, in movies such as Magnolia and Interview With The Vampire...though technically he did still get top billing in that one! Anyway, this is one of the many planned reboots that most fans wished would just disappear, but now that Cruise could potentially be a factor, what are your feelings on the matter?
