Mickey Rourke Also In Talks for "War of Gods"

Mickey Rourke Also In Talks for "War of Gods"Submit Comment
Ever since Mickey Rourke's performance in "The Wrestler," the actor has had quite a bit of roles to choose from. So many that he's starting to have scheduling problems.

We just reported that he is in-talks to play Corin, the father of Conan (Jason Momoa) in the "Conan the Barbarian" remake. And Deadline has now learned that he is also in negotiations for the Tarsem Singh-directed "War of Gods."

Rourke is being considered for the role of King Hyperion, the ruler of Ancient Greece who does battle witht he divines. Henry Cavill ("The Tudors") and Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) are also set to star.

The problem is that "Conan" will begin shooting on March 15th and "War of Gods" is scheduled to begin on April 7th. Unless Rourke's "Conan" part is really small, there is a good chance that the actor will have to turn down one of the offers.

Mickey, if you have a choice of "this or that Conan movie" pleeeeease choose this. At least it'll look good.

Freida Pinto is better than Momoa dude, ya know... Even if you consider "mouthass" option.

Turn down Conan! How is that even a problem? One is getting rewrites from Halloween: Resurrection and the other is directed by Tarsem Singh. It's like choosing between sh*t and p*ssy.

Hmmm...what to do, what to do...

@Freudian

If a guy could make "The Fall" on pure enthusiasm, imagine, what he can do with a 90mil budget?

Think, Mickey, think. Tough choice, I know. Momoa-Sapp vs Pinto-Singh

^Exactly. Think with your d*ck Mickey. Would you rather go one-on-one with Sapp or Pinto?

This guy is a too decent actor to play in either of them.
