Warner Brothers is re-envisioning CONAN THE BARBARIAN. Set for a 2007 production start, the film will be a "new take" on Robert E. Howard's character (as opposed to a remake of the Schwarzenegger version). Boaz Yakin (FRESH, REMEMBER THE TITANS) has been asked to write and possibly direct the film after his pitch apparently impressed the studio, which doesn't say much seeing as monkeys flinging their poo on blank pages seems to impress them, too.
sigh, I grow weary of these remakes.... but IF it is to be done, all I ask is they cast Conan as a good actor who's a "no name" (who also has few lines - Conan is not a chatter!), use Frazetta's paintings as a art direction guide and make the movie fucking kick ass.
That's all. heh
No idea what this does to the planned "KING CONAN" which would have been essentially "Conan 3" returning Arnold to the role as an old Conan and reuniting him with Conan 1 director John Milius.
Conan The Barbarian is one of my favorite films! So I suggest everyone renting it this weekend and giving it a viewing! If you've seen it several times already, then I highly suggest you rent it and watch with the audio commentary on - hilarious stuff.
