John McTiernan, Gerard Butler to Direct, Star in New Conan Movie?

Now I have a franchise reboot. Ho, ho, ho.

He’s already proven he can rock a loincloth as convincingly as anyone since Marc Singer in Beastmaster — so will Gerard Butler put that talent to use in the new Conan movie?

That’s what French film site Mad Movies is saying — or at least, that’s how Ain’t It Cool News translates the report, and since we took Spanish in high school, we’re sort of at their mercy. According to the latest rumors, Butler is being floated as the new Conan — and John McTiernan, apparently, is first on the studio’s list of potential directors.

McTiernan, as you might recall, has been having sort of a bad year; he was recently sentenced to a $100,000 fine and four months in jail for his role in the Anthony Pellicano fiasco. The Conan gig could be just the pick-me-up the Die Hard director needs.
