"Conan" to Shoot in August without Brett Ratner

Posted: May 8th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Conan" to Shoot in August without Brett RatnerSubmit Comment
Last month, Brett Ratner revealed that he is attached to the upcoming reboot of "Conan," the iconic 1982 film that helped launch Arnold Schwarzenegger's career. "That's something I'm actively attached to," he said. "We're just budgeting the script and trying to figure out when's a good time and where to shoot it."

Now, producer Joe Gatta tells Empire magazine that Ratner is currently of "Conan." "We're currently in the process of hiring a director," he said. "For the past six months we were discussing the movie with Brett Ratner, and for more timing issues than anything else we had to part ways with Brett. We all wanted him to do it, believe me; just the timing didn't work."

He continued: "We have a potential start-date on 'Conan' of August 24. And we'll be shooting in Bulgaria. I would say though the emphasis is on Conan [rather than Red Sonja]. It's our crown jewel here at the company and that will be the leader. Red Sonja probably won't happen until next year, as far as making it goes. So we want to launch Conan and reinvent the franchise."

As far as hiring an actor to play Conan, Gatta said: "We'll have an open casting call: as soon as we hire our director the search is on."

Not Gerard Butler, plz no, lol!! I'd like to see a relative unknown in this, or someone not very popular. Its too hard to buy into the "new" character when its someone you know from other roles. If this is gonna be a franchise, using a new actor is a must imho.
