Conan Remake Eying Late 2008 Start Date

When you think about it, John Milius’ 1982 “Conan the Barbarian” is a pretty damn impressive film. If you look at the movie again, now, I don’t think you could tell it was made over two decades ago. The film stands up to the test of time that bloody well. In any case, they’re doing a remake, and if all goes well, late 2008 will see the “Conan” remake go into production.

More:

Pic is earmarked to begin production later this year, but the start date will depend on the resolution of the writers strike. Nu Image/Millennium chief Avi Lerner confirmed that he is in discussions to make a WGA deal akin to those brokered with United Artists and the Weinstein Co. Such a pact would speed up the process.

Interesting. It really looks like the WGA is doing a smart thing here and picking off the studios one-by-one. Hey, anything to get this thing settled is good for us, the consumer.

The Conan redo will be written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer (“Sahara,” “Cowboys & Aliens”), but no director has been attached yet.
