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.
