Messing with Memories: ‘Conan the Barbarian’

Conan
Original: 1981
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger; Directed by John Milus
Remake: Scheduled for 2011

Conan is set to wield his sword in this third outing, which is rumored to head back to the comic source for inspiration. And as The Governator has demonstrated in the last Terminator film, it may be possible to have him — or a computer-enhanced facsimile — at least grace the screen in a cameo.

Rumors of Brett Ratner directing are apparently out the window, now. Michael Bay protegé Marcus Nispel (he of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th reboots) is attached. Producer Randall Emmett (Righteous Kill) was recently quoted in mlive.com as saying he is prepping for a remake of “Conan the Barbarian” with producing partner George Furla (Rambo V)in February. Emmett is hyping it to be a “gigantic budgeted film”and ” it will be filmed in 85 days with a crew of 200.”

ComicBookMovie reports that Daniel Cudmore, Colossus from X-Men,  (pictured above)  is in the running for the head Barbarian.

For all you Conan completists, the duo are also filming a remake of Red Sonja, starring Rose McGowen.

IMDB has it listed as a 2011 release.

  1. Why won’t they ever remake crappy movies? So instead of Conan remake one of the many terrible clones that came afterwards.

    Kill me, please.

    • OMFG! If they mess this up i’ll kill someone. Conan the Barbarian is ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES EVER MADE! Try as hard as you may, but you shall not succeed!

  2. I think part of the reason (if not all), is there is a name recognition, hence people will pay. Not sure there would be a big Deathstalker following.
