Brett Ratner to Direct "Conan"

Posted: October 17th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Brett Ratner to Direct "Conan"Submit Comment
AICN received a scoop that Lionsgate has hired a director for their upcoming "Conan" project and that their official choice is Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men 3).

The new "Conan" movie will be the first installment in a series of films, and is rumored to have a budget of over $100 million. As always, casting will be very difficult and closely watched, since Arnold Schwarzenegger has so memorably played the character in the 1982 film "Conan the Barbarian."

Many fans will disagree with Lionsgate's choice of helmer, but the writing staff is not much better. Howard McCain and his writing partner Dirk Blackman have been hired to put together a screenplay. Their past credits include only "Outlander," that's going straight to DVD, and the third "Underworld" film.

With Ratner onboard to direct and McCain and Blackman onboard to write, does this film have any chance of being good?

There needs to be a restraining order for this guy and any franchise, decent idea. Damn you Spielberg!! Damn you!

After all of his bad ideas that were rejected they are going to let him have CONAN?!?!

Somebody PLEASE call Paul Verhoeven to direct it, or Ratner will crash this franchise as he did with the X-Men...

i don't get why you all hate him so much, x-men 3 was not bad at all and i loved red dragon, so leave him alone.

I'd just like to state that Outlander is definitely a fantastic adventure film and was royally screwed...it also had a limited release- so it's not direct to DVD. I love how worst previews likes to cut down people but Howard McCain's been in the business since 1988 and after watching Outlander I have to say that the man knows what he's doing. I'm actually surprised McCain wasn't chosen to direct Conan after coming off of a viking movie...The guy is cheap, talented, and doesn't swim up his own ass like Ratner does...

It sounds like when you say McCain and Blackman, you're talking about the Presidential candidates, only you're rude to Obama.

Brett Ratner needs to seriously just stop. Seriously.

It's frickin Conan people. Brett Ratner is not that bad of a director. He's certainly not one of the best but he should be able to handle this one. It's just Conan! It should be entertaining. and then forgotten about.

Why is Ratner getting so much work??? They should just let this guy do direct to dvd films only at best.
