Yes, according to the guys over at Latino Review, who claims that they’ve been told that “an offer” has been made to Mickey Rourke to play Conan’s dear ol pop, Corin. In the plot details that I’ve read, Corin dies very early on in the movie, when Conan is still a boy, setting up the hero’s quest for vengeance. Which means there won’t be any scenes between Rourke and the just-announced new Conan himself, Jason Momoa, so the lack of resemblance between the two is moot, i suppose.
Up next for the wide world of “Conan” casting? Tamara, the female lead, and Khalar Singh, the main bad guy.
