"Conan" Character Breakdown Revealed

Posted: October 27th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Conan" Character Breakdown RevealedSubmit Comment
Director Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Pathfinder) is getting ready to shoot the "Conan" remake in February in Bulgaria. But before he gets the cameras rolling, he will need some actors. Thanks to Moviehole, we have a breakdown of the characters that will appear in the film. Check out the descriptions of the lead roles below and click here to see the many other supporting roles, including a narrator.

CONAN: He's in his 20s to early 30s, Caucasian, powerfully built, broad-shouldered, sun browned skin lined with scars. Piercing blue eyes and square-cut black mane, tall. He is a savage killer that has matured into the refinement his father tried to teach him when he was young. Conan is very smart, almost inhumanly strong, and very cunning. His entire life, from the moment of his birth, has been shaped by violence. Being the last of his tribe and having to watch his father die a cruel death, he is determined avenge his peoples slaughter by killing all those who led the attack on the Cimmerians, including the all-powerful Khalar Singh. He is prepared to die in order to accomplish his goal. What Conan did not expect, was to find a reason to live.

TAMARA: She is 18 to 24 years old, Caucasian or Middle Eastern, open to all ethnicities; beautiful, studious, correct, a novitiate of a Greek influenced monastery. A master of martial arts, she has been trained to be the Queen's servant, bodyguard and best friend. She and many other female bodyguards to the queen have been in hiding most of their lives because of the curse of Acheron, which would take the queen's life to bring almost immortal power to its king. When Khalar Singh, a powerful warlord with ambitions to become the king of Acheron, storms the monastery and captures all of the novitiates, she is separated from Ilira, the one she must protect. With all of her strength and will, Tamara is determined to find and rescue her. She finds herself in league with Conan because of a mutual need to find Khalar Singh. She is not in the least intimidated by Conan's size or grim demeanor and their alliance eventually blossoms into something that surprises them both.

KHALAR SINGH: He's in his 40s to 50s, Asian or Middle Eastern, Central Asian, Mongol, Turkish, or Persian, open to all ethnicities; commanding in size and manner, a warlord and formidable warrior, brilliant, cruel, weathered and tanned by the many campaigns he has waged and won. He is driven in his quest to find the Queen of Acheron and has been building an empire to do so. His goal is to find the Queen whose blood will bring life to the demonic minions of Acheron while making himself king of this hellish power. With this power, Khalar will protect his legacy against the onslaught of master sorcerer, Thoth-Amon so that his weak son, Fariq may rule after his death. While riding into a Cimmerian village to recruit his old comrade, Corin, his large collection of mercenaries slaughters them to the last soul when Corin refuses to join them. The village's only survivor was young Conan. When Khalar's search has finally narrowed to the likely discovery of the queen at a monastery of female monks, he also learns Conan is older and hungry for revenge.

UKAFA: He's in his 30s-40, very dark-skinned African or African American, massively framed at six-foot-five, gold-toothed, hardened by a lifetime of war, a leader of Kushite Tribemen from the savannahs of Kush. Ukafa is Khalar Singh's second in command, jealous that Singh's son, Fariq, will one day be warlord. He obeys his leader but plots the overthrow of his son. He is a mighty warrior and unbeatable in battle until he comes face to face with Conan.

I f*cking hate Marcus Nispel, I like Louis Leterrier for the job or as always my first pick Zack Snyder.

And I agree, Unknowns for all the roles, if not...

CONAN: maybe a buff Sam Worthington or a bigger Randy Orton or Nathan Jones.

TAMARA: Diane Kruger or Mélanie Laurent (but with jessica biel's body)

KHALAR SINGH: Li Gong or Michelle Yeoh

UKAFA: Djimon Hounsou

PEACE!

CONAN: Conan (O'Brien)

TAMARA: Jayden Jaymes

KHALAR SINGH: Eric Estrada (open to all ethnicities, right?)

UKAFA: Not Gary Coleman!

Conan will need street whores (daughter + mother deal)... so:

Lohan and Slusho's Mom.

@PP - LOL! Seriously though, if they made "Conan O'Brian the Barbarian" it would probably be the greatest thing any of us have ever seen.

Hollywood needs to stop with the goddamn remakes and reboot bullsh*t and get original. Even the first Conan wasn't original but it still kicked ass. And what the f*ck happened to Thulsa Doom?

Also, it's going to be called "Conan", not "Conan the Barbarian" like the original. But you are right that it will be hard to top the awesome original, but I'll hold out some hope until they make a mistep (casting a pretty-boy as Conan, etc.).

Rocketman: "I just hope they follow the books not the films."

This is not even close to ANY of the original stories. It's more of a contradiction than Milius.

Why are they wasting their time with this harga?

1. Stop the current production.

2. Get an REH expert in the same room with the scriptwriters. Have them read the books and instruct them that the Conan stories will serve as the building blocks for the movie, and nothing else.

3. Use this film as a chance to reinvent the pop cultural idea of Conan.

Look at Casino Royale. Batman Begins. Pirates of the Carribean. All of these films took dead characters, dead franchises, and dead genres and reinvigorated them by not playing it safe. Even fans of Conan the Barbarian don’t want a rehash of that. We are twenty years older now, and we need something more sophisticated. Bryan Singer learned that the hard way with Superman Returns. This can NOT be a nostalgia project.
