More Conan news!

I guess my post the other day was a little overzealous.


Various Names Up For Helming “Conan”

The rumors of Brett Ratner directing the big screen re-invention of “Conan the Barbarian” seem to have been premature.

According to Latino Review, the “Rush Hour” helmer wasn’t offered the gig but did have a meeting with Nu Image about the job.

In fact several directors have met with the company about the job in recent weeks. The company desperately wanted Robert Rodriguez for the film but he can’t do it due to his busy schedule.

Other names mentioned include some commendable talent like Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“28 Weeks Later”), Neil Marshall (“The Descent,” “Doomsday”) and James McTeigue (“V for Vendetta”) along with some less than exciting names like The Strause Brothers (“AVP: Requiem”), along with Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (“Crank,” “Pathology”).

Something tells me they’ll probably go for the ones that will be the cheapest and they’ll end up producing some piece of crap.
