TheWrap reports that Summit is looking to cast Tom Cruise in the Ramirez role in their Highlander reboot. The Japanese sword wielding Spanish immortal mentor of protagonist MacLoead, who was bizarrely played by Scottish actor Sean Connery. They are quick to point-out this is Summit reaching out to Cruise, and talks haven't started.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan will be make his feature debut with the film, with Neal H. Mortiz and former director Justin Lin acting as producers. Ryan Reynolds was attached for the longest time for the lead role, but Jeff suggests Dan Stevens (The Guest) for the part instead, I can't help but agree with him.
