Marcus Nispel to Helm "Conan" Remake

Posted: June 12th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Marcus Nispel to Helm "Conan" RemakeSubmit Comment
Marcus Nispel has been set by Millennium Films to direct "Conan," ending a nine-year development ordeal to reinvent the Robert E Howard-created barbarian, first immortalized onscreen by Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1982.

Production on the remake is set to start late this year in Bulgaria and South Africa. The script is written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, whose credits include "Sahara" and "Cowboys and Aliens."

Paradox originally set the project at Warner Bros but declined to ink a new rights deal after numerous unsuccessful attempts to make it with directors like Larry and Andy Wachowski and Robert Rodriguez. Producers then considered Brett Ratner last year, but the filmmaker could not commit in a timely fashion.

That opened the door for Nispel, who'll make "Conan" his third remake, after "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Friday the 13th."

I'm a Conan fan from WAY BEFORE the movie came out. Uhh... I don't think even Arnie 'immortalized' it, but anyway... And WHO will portray Conan?!?!

I really dont know- hopefully they wont be casting wrestlers or The Rock...Really they could cast an unknown for all I care. I was just excited about the director who's controlling. I think Nispel is capable of a lot more than Bay produced crap...this could be the one for him- but damn...We went from Robert Rodriguez, to Brett Ratner to Marcus? Im worried. Wish I could be more optimistic about quality flicks but the preproduction on this flick has been a total mess.

Texas Massacre and Friday 13th were both good horror remakes. All that means is that the conan remake might be a little more graphic, which how every new remake is anyway. Of all the directors they've considered so far, I'm most comfortable with this choice.

^^ Agreed. Whoever says the remake isn't at least better than the original franchise films is certainly someone who has a boner for all things craptacular.

Friday the 13th I mean- Texas Chainsaw Massacre was 'aaaight' and I only say that because they had the smarts not to mess around with the second- which is a masterpiece of gruesome awesomeness and Dennis Hopper kickassness.

This should be good, Nispel is awesome Pathfinder is completely underrated and shot on a budget. They should wait for the governators term to end and make King Conan, or if doing a younger timeline story only Gerard Butler is qualified.
