I was surfing the internet while watching the Highlander T.V. Show and decided to look up news on the 2012 remake of the original and so far the cast that has been assembled is Bruce Dallas Howard, Vinnie Jones, and Jason Connery (Son OF Sean Connery) From what I can tell Vinnie Jones will be playing the Kuragen, And Jason Connery will be playing Ramirez. I'm hoping that Kevin McKidd will be cast as Conner MacLoed. That is all the news for now. I'll continue to keep my eye open for any more news.

Man I really hope they do a good job with this remake cause its taken me till right about....Now to get over that Highlander The Source crap they made poor Adrienne Paul be a part of lol

Ive never seen kevin mckidd in anything, but ~immortal112 was saying he is a pretty solid actor and he is Scottish so hopefully he will be as great in the role as we all hope he will be

Cheers,
Jason

the reason he's a solid actor is why I want him to play Conner as for movies and T.V. Shows he's been in look up Dog Soldiers, Percy Jackson and the Olympians The Lighting Thief, Maid of Honor, and Gray's Anatomy. The last two I have only seen in passing. but if he can pull off some of the guys he's pulled off here whats to stop him from being a pretty good Conner?

I'm so fed up of remakes, it seems either imagination has run dry or kids nowadays can't be bothered to watch anything that isn't at least 50%CGI... I do wish instead of yet another remake of a cult movie they had bothered to make a decent farewell to the saga instead of that bloody awful The Sour... I mean that which shall never again be mentioned. Oh well, I can only hope this time they'll get it somewhat right and stop insulting the fans, though I'm not getting my hopes high.

Yeah you and me both they are even remaking Jaws as in the classic that made everyone scared to death to go near water. But hey some of the remakes I've seen are good Clash of the Titans is the big one. the thing tat is really annoying is that they are even remaking movies that aren't even close to ten years old.

I have yet to watch CotT, but I'm glad you enjoyed it, I hope it won't disappoint me either.
Remaking recent movies has to be the height of "no imagination left", is it really possible that, like some people claim, everything has really been said and done? I hope not, I don't think so.

Well that shows how brain dead Hollywood is.

i just looked up kevin mckidd and realized that he played in grey's anatomy and i liked him in that so i agree with you in hoping that he is cast as connor. :D

Here is the main thing that got my vote for him to play Conner: He's from Scotland. No offense to Chris Lambert but he just didn't give of the 'don't mess with me.' Scottish aoura. He had the look but not the feeling. but that is just me thinking.
