Jason Momoa Isn’t Just a Barbarian, He’s Also a Screenwriter

If the upcoming reboot of “Conan The Barbarian” does well and enough people pay their hard-earned money to go see it, you might get a sequel pretty fast … courtesy of “Conan” star Jason Momoa. Yup, that’s right, kids, he’s not just an outrageously bloody barbarian and muscled badass, but Momoa is also a screenwriter. Or, a budding screenwriter, anyway.

According to Digital Spy (via something called Crave Online), Momoa, besides confirming that he’s never seen the 1982 version starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and declares that he’s already written a sequel to his version of “Conan The Barbarian”, and that the script is “currently awaiting approval from studio bosses.”

“[W]e’re waiting to see if they’ll accept it,” Momoa continued. “It will mostly be [original]. It’s character-adapted, because I really want to get into more of the mythical creatures.”

Of course, all this talk of sequels is pointless until we see how the first movie does in theaters. I suspect it might do well, but I’ve been wrong before.

“Conan The Barbarian”, starring Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan, Rachel Nichols, Jason Momoa, Leo Howard, Saïd Taghmaoui, Bob Sapp, Nonso Anozie, Marco Khan, Raw Leiba and directed by Marcus Nispel, slashes into theaters August 19, 2011.

    I need bust out all my scripts now and shop them around. I might even a Conan script somewhere – he fights Crom himself!

    Please don’t do another one!? I actually walked out of the theater during the octopus fight scene. I honestly believe they had some generic barbarian script and just changed the name of the hero to Conan so they could make more money. Conan’s origin was destroyed! He was never enslaved, and somehow grew up to be an expert swordsman. He didn’t have super strength. HE DIDN’T SAY CROM FOR THE ENTIRE MOVIE(Well at least not up to the point late in the movie when I walked out). Jason Momoa sucked. His voice actually cracks a couple times while he trying to talk with a raspy voice. It was bad.

      Aww, that sounds really disappointed. Luckily I was too busy over the weekend to go see it. This is now a blu-ray for me.

      He never utters his favorite curse, “by Crom!?”
