The Green who?

Sexy Ryan Reynolds is about to take on yet another big movie with franchise potential, this time a super-sleek update of the 1986 Sean Connery flick Highlander (which itself spawned several sequels, TV shows, and more). This time, Ryan will play a Scotsman who discovers he is immortal with special sword-wielding powers (sorta like Hal Jordan discovering he is The Green Lantern) who must battle others to capture a mysterious "Prize."

We're not saying The Green Lantern was a total bust (after all, that's how he met his sweetheart Blake Lively), but after that and his turn as Deadpool in the pretty vile X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ryan could really use a box-office bump-up in the action department.

Here's hoping his beautiful face (and bod!) graces Highlanders 2, 3, 4 and beyond! That's surely what the studio execs want...
