Those who’ve been patiently awaiting an all-new “Conan” movie may find themselves mildly intrigued by a project called “Conan: Red Nails,” which is a feature-length animated adventure from the folks at Swordplay Entertainment. (And they have a pretty cool voice cast lined up, too.)
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Ron Perlman has signed on to voice Conan of Cimmeria for Swordplay Entertainment’s “Conan: Red Nails,” the first animated film featuring the mythic barbarian. Marg Helgenberger and James Marsden also are joining the voice cast, which includes Clancy Brown, Cree Summer and Mark Hamill. The film will be directed by Victor Dal Chele, with a screenplay by Steve Gold and Timothy Dolan.”
OK, so it’s not the John Milius Conanfest we were hoping for, but it’s better than nothing!
