Conan's Making a Comeback!

by | June 15, 2006 | Comments

Fans of the seminal Robert E. Howard character "Conan" will consider this pretty good news: Veteran filmmaker Boaz Yakin will be bringing the barbarian back to the big screen, and the plan is to stick more closely to the Howard books than the Ahnold movies from the early ’80s.

From Variety: "Warner Bros. has set Boaz Yakin to write and potentially direct "Conan the Barbarian," a new take on the Robert E. Howard-created character. WB is eyeing an early 2007 production start for the film. Yakin’s concept is more faithful to the Howard story than were the two Dino De Laurentiis-produced "Conan" films that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the sword-wielding conqueror."

Mr. Yakin’s previous films include "Fresh," "Remember the Titans," and … "Uptown Girls."
