At a certain point (that is, just about now) there won’t be much point to posting new photos from Conan. Until we get shots of the supporting cast like Stephen Lang, seems like we’ll just see a parade of images featuring Jason Momoa and a variety of grimaces. Not that I’d expect too much else, but it’s a question of diminishing returns.
So, until we get those photos of the supporting cast, here are two new shots of Momoa, from the film’s official Facebook page, via Bleeding Cool. I’m still curious about the film, but at this point I need to see a trailer to be sure the movie will feature more than Momoa roaming around a relatively empty landscape, swinging his sword at the air. (Though wouldn’t that be kind of great? Like Garfield Minus Garfield, only with Conan instead of Jon Arbuckle.) Read More »

Briefly: Well, this is more like it. I’m sure there will still be a flurry of comments that this photo of Jason Momoa in action as Conan the Barbarian looks too skinny. But I see this and just get a sense of power and fury — looks like a reasonable vision of Conan to me. It’s certainly the best thing I’ve seen from the production so far.
‘The production,’ of course, is the Marcus Nispel-directed Conan, starring Momoa, Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Leo Howard and Rachel Nichols. The image was either scanned or photographed from a Spanish magazine, which is why it looks a little odd.
See the image in full after the break. And, just in case you didn’t see it earlier this week, after the image I re-present the very entertaining Conan the Barbarian: The Musical. Read More »

I was happy about the news that Jason Momoa (Stargate: Atlantis) had been cast as Conan in the new film by Marcus Nispel. He seems like he can act, and he’s got a look that will not only work for the part, but quickly differentiate this version from the Schwarzenegger original.
Now we’ve got a few pics of Momoa in costume and a handful of set images to give you an idea of what to expect from Conan. Read More »
Our hopes of seeing Mickey Rourke as papa to Jason Momoa’s Conan were shattered when Rourke left the project for Tarsem’s War of the Gods — but now it appears that there’s another badass on the horizon for Marcus Nispel’s Conan remake. Vulture is reporting that Ron Perlman — of Hellboy and Sons of Anarchy fame — is in negotiations to play Conan’s father Corin.
Perlman would be joining a cast which currently includes Rachel Nichols as Tamara, a royal bodyguard in league with Conan, and Stephen Lang as the villain, Khalar Singh.

Recently we heard that Nu Image/Millennium and Lionsgate were looking at three actors as possible options to be the new Conan the Barbarian in the film to be directed by Marcus Nispel. There was Jason Momoa, from Stargate: Atlantis; Kellan Lutz from Twilight; and a third, then-unnamed actor who turned out to be Jared Padalecki. Now two sources are reporting that the choice has been made, and it is Momoa. Read More »

Hey, remember that new Conan movie? Marcus Nispel is directing, and it is meant to begin shooting in about two months. Funny, though…we haven’t heard anything about who’s playing Conan. Evidently the right actor isn’t so easy to find, which is why production is currently slated for March after being bumped twice, first from August ’09 to February of this year, then from February to March. There have been rumors about who might be the new Conan, but nothing yet confirmed.
But there’s light at the end of the tunnel, as producers reportedly have three names in mind. We know two of them. If you don’t recognize the faces above, the names are after the break. Read More »
