FIRST OFFICIAL IMAGE FROM "CONAN" REMAKE, AND "DR.STRANGE" GETS A MOVIE

Earlier, this Spring, I've shown you some secret images from the set of the new adaptation of "Conan" which is being filmed currently over in Bulgaria,but today I have for you the first official image of young Jason Momoa as the famous barbarian hero looking all dangerous. As you know the new remake will follow Conan in his younger years and will also star Ron Perlman, sexy Rachel Nichols and Rose McGowan. The movie will come out some time next year, and it is the first in the whole line of the barbaric-epic remakes along with the reboots of "Kull" and "Red Sonja".

"Deadline Hollywood" has also revealed today that "Conan's" writers were just hired to adapt Marvel's comic "Dr. Strange" for the big screen. Scheduled for 2012, "Dr. Strange" will follow a self-centered New York surgeon who lost his touch after a car accident. He became a wandering derelict and then found his way to a healer in the Himalayas. This is where he learned to tap into psychic powers to fight evil wizards and other evildoers. If you ask me I see Karl Urban in this role :) But then again, everyone knows, I see Karl everywhere :)

  1. I'm not a fan of Nispel's messy directing, so I don't expect too much from this "Conan" reboot. On the other hand, I'm happy that they choose to shoot it in my country ;) Jason Momoa looks great on this photo! :) I saw this picture over Nu Boyana Film's site today and read that they've just completed production of the latest Conan movie.

    Nu Boyana Film Studios is also hosting the new commercial for L'Oreal/Garnier which is being directed by Marcus Nispel and has the appearance of well known models from Paris,Italy and Brazil.

    I honestly didn't know that Nispel shoots commercials! :)

  2. well, Nispel was also a director of music videos, so I can imagine he does all kinds of things :) Film directors often do commercials, everyone still remembers the famous and magical Buzz Luhrman's adverts for Channel with Nicole Kidman.

  4. Saw Momoa's photo last night on SciFi Wire. Think he'll do well in the role.

  5. It will be interesting to see how the Conan and spin-off projects stack up to the originals. These are the kind of films Rose McGowan ought to be in. Too bad Red Sonja fell through for her.

    @Matthew and Answer

    @Alex

  9. I think Momoa will be a great Conan. But that still doesn't guarantee this film will be good as well.

  10. well, I think most movie buffs are skeptical by nature and they always wish for most movies to be flops, especially the fun movies like this one. But we all know that you can't and shouldn't expect artistic masterpieces from films such as CONAN, THE SCORPION KING, RED SONJA .... we all know what's the main reason for watching such flicks :)
