Summit Entertainment is working on a Highlander reboot with first-time director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. Today it looks like Tom Cruise is being eyed to play the immortal character, according to The Wrap.

The site says that the character will be similar to Sean Connery’s character, Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez.

The first Highlander film starred Christopher Lambert (Mortal Kombat) as the Scottish immortal, Connor MacLeod. The immortals fight for survival, but if they want to become powerful, they must become the last one.

There’s no information on whether Cruise is interested. Do you think he’ll make a good immortal?
