Solomon Kane Movie Arrives, New Conan Movie on the Horizon
Those that have a love for Conan and all things Robert E. Howard will be pleased to learn there is a surprising new cinematic adaptation on the horizon....and it is an unexpected one. Those that thought the recent release of the SOLOMON KANE film would be the only Howard film (or franchise) to become a reality can take solace in the fact a new CONAN film will be coming to theaters.
No, it will not be a sequel to the CONAN remake that came out a couple years back. Personally, I liked the remake and found it to be a decent Hollywood adaptation. While far from the definitive Conan film, it was truer to the original tales story wise than the 1982 classic.
The new Conan film will be the long awaited sequel to the original. Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger will return to essay the role of the character in "The Legend of Conan," which occurs within the framework of the KING CONAN stories. The original series was originally intended to be a serious trilogy (The awful 1984 sequel deviated from the original sequel idea) This new film will be closer to the darker roots of the original.
