According to The Wrap, Green Lantern and RIPD star Ryan Reynolds has left Summit’s Highlander reboot.

This follows the departure of 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo in November 2012, citing a very different vision of the Highlander franchise from producers Neal Moritz and Peter Davis.

The pair now need to cast both a star and sign up a new director.

You can pick up the Highlander Immortal Edition on Blu-ray for £7.88 from Amazon.co.uk.
