It is easy to forget the original Highlander was a cult classic.
The endless dreadful sequels and dodgy TV series cheapened what was an imaginative and exciting concept.
But Hollywood heart throb Ryan Reynolds could be about to revive the franchise.
Reynolds, who has already turned up in the X-men series and DC's Green Lantern blockbuster attempts, has signed on the dotted line to reprise Christopher Lambert's role as the immortal Connor MacLeod in a big-budget remake.

Admittedly, Green Lantern sucked and bombed at the box office – but Reynolds emerged relatively unscathed with the plot and direction taking the blame for that turkey.
Could Highlander finally be the action adventure franchise Ryan can be proud of?
Weeks after signaling he was to quit risking his life doing his own death-defying stunts, nice-guy martial arts legend Jackie Chan has announced a new action movie.
The as-yet unnamed movie will feature Chan as a detective who must track down an American gambler who has fled leaving debts to a shady casino syndicate.
Expect a wise- cracking buddy movie – let's hope Chris Rock isn't in it.
Filming is under way on the big screen remake of Stephen King's high school horror movie Carrie.
Taking on the Sissy Spacek role from the 1976 film version as the bullied teenager with the scary telekinetic powers is Chloe Moretz, who has been spotted on set wearing a less-than-flattering wardrobe.
This Kimberly Peirce-directed version is said to be closer to King's original text.
