New Line May Be Resurrecting "Conan"

by | June 29, 2007 | Comments

The property languished at Warner Bros. for the better part of a decade without any movies coming out of the process. Now maybe New Line will have some better luck.

The studio is looking at a $1 million price tag for a years’ worth of screen rights on Robert E. Howard’s classic barbarian character. Obviously the success of "300" has moviemakers all excited about the next big ‘swords & sandals’ epic, and obviously Conan would make for a pretty big tentpole release.

The property belonged to Universal when they released the excellent "Conan the Barbarian" and the rather goofy "Conan the Destroyer," but the character has remained dormant, movie-wise, since the mid-’80s. Several filmmakers (including John Milius, Robert Rodriguez, and the Wachowskis) have been attached at some point, but with the project leaving WB, that puts everything back at square one again. More info as it becomes available.

Then again, a leap from WB to New Line isn’t that big a leap at all. Don’t they have the same parent companies?
