Looks Like 'Conan' Won't Be Coming To Malaysia
OCT 29, 2010 - Stumbled on to some dope on the remake of Conan which is tentatively scheduled for release in the US on January 2011.
The film, directed by Marcus Nispel (of Texas Chainsaw Massacre), stars Jason Momoa as Conan, Rose McGowan, Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman and Rachel Nichols. Location shooting started last March mainly in Bulgaria. According to sources this new movie will be more faithful to creator Robert E. Howard's original story than the Arnold Schwarzenegger films.
Basically, the plot deals with Conan the Cimmerian and his adventures across the continent of Hyboria on a quest to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village. Momoa, who is taking on the role made famous by Arnie Schwarzenegger, is a Hawaiian actor who starred in Stargate Atlantis.
From the trailer and stills (below), this remake has all the trappings of a B-movie - including lots of topless sequences. As such, it looks like it won't be coming to Malaysia.
