Conan Looking Better
[Movies] Conan Update
Posted by Ashish on 08.13.2008
Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain have been hired to adapt the screenplay for Conan.
The new version won't be a direct remake of the 1982 film though, as producer Fredrik Malmberg plans on going for a darker approach to the material.
"Fans expect [these types of movies] to be more true to the source material," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "There's no reason why there couldn't be a Conan movie every two years. He's almost like Batman. He's a dark hero. He's a hard hero. He has to be badass, but we also have to like him."
