Hoping to put his Deadpool sword training to good use, Ryan Reynolds is the current front-runner for the role of Connor MacLeod in Summit Entertainment's Highlander reboot.

It is unclear at this time if an actual offer has been made, but the actor is reportedly in talks for this Juan Carlos Fresnadillo directed fantasy adventure that follows an immortal Scottish swordsman who must sever the head of a brutal barbarian in order to become the last of his kind.
