James McTeigue in Talks to Reboot "Conan"

James McTeigue in Talks to Reboot "Conan"Submit Comment
We recently learned that because of Brett Ratner's busy schedule, he will not be able to direct the new "Conan" reboot, which could begin filming this Summer. With such tight deadlines, producers are eager to sign a helmer and move on to finishing the script and casting the lead actor.

According to Chud, the director has already been found, and it is James McTeigue. The helmer is best known for directing "V for Vendetta" and the upcoming "Ninja Assassin." He is also the protege of the Wachowski brothers, having previously worked as an assistant director on the "Matrix" trilogy.

This news is not surprising, since the Wachowskis were once rumored to take on "Conan." Producers must have kept a close relationship with the brothers and their team.

At this point, McTeigue has yet to sign the contract, but he wants the job. But bringing him on board could also mean that the previously rumored $120 million budget may have to be cut.

Now The Conan project has some faith. Thank God! Watch: The faith will then again be ruined if the distribution is taken up by Fox.

Holy sh*t! From Ratner to McTeique. That's a huge jump in the success of this film. Back him up with a good cast. But yes, Fox is distributing so we can expect a little garbage.
