Is McKidd The New Highlander?

Scottish actor Kevin McKidd (TV’s “Rome,” “Journeyman,” “Made of Honor”) confirmed in a Dublin radio interview that he’s been approached about starring in the “Highlander” remake says JoBlo.

The original film series revolved around a secret race of immortals who, over the course of centuries, constantly clash and cut each other’s heads off to gain their power.

Summit Entertainment is behind the remake and producers have previously mentioned they would include medieval Scotland in their version of the story. McKidd was previously linked to the title role in Marvel’s “Thor”.
