Nispel’s Conan “the Barbarian” Once Again
Marcus Nispel’s remake of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cult classic, Conan the Barbarian, has been renamed – wait for it – Conan the Barbarian.
The film was originally titled Conan 3D but Lionsgate decided the name didn’t pack a punch that was worthy of the muscle-bound Cimmerian. Actually, the original title was Conan the Barbarian, but it was soon decided that something new was needed so ‘the Barbarian’ got dropped in favor of 3D. Hopefully, the guys at Lionsgate have made up their minds because the folks at Box Office Mojo are going to get tired if they have to keep changing things around.
The story is about Conan (played by Jason Momoa) and his adventures across Hyboria as he seeks vengeance against those who murdered his father and the people of his village.
Conan’s father is played by Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Season of the Witch) and Leo Howard (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) plays Conan as a young boy. Rose McGowan (Grindhouse), Stephen Lang (Avatar), and Rachel Nichols (Star Trek) also star in the film.
The new Conan the Barbarian is scheduled for release on August 19, 2011.
Can lightning strike twice? If you asked me what I like about Schwarzenegger’s Conan, I wouldn’t be able to tell you… but I like the movie. It’s almost a guilty pleasure. Will the new Conan have the same type of charm or possibly even be a good movie that’s actually worthy of being liked?
