    Ronon is Conan? I wouldn't have guessed that...but that could be kinda awesome.

    He'll need to bulk up a bit, but he's got the "Barbarian" part down.

    Can't be any worse than the last TV series--the one that made the cartoon seem realistic.

    If Jake Gyllenhall can be cast as the "Prince of Persia", nothing is gonna surprise me.


    This just in...Michael Cera has been cast in the lead of the "Beastmaster" reboot!

    I'd like to see him bulk up a bit and he should be fine.

    I'm more worried about the writing and fight choreography. If those are done well, we can manage almost any casting decision (except maybe Richard Simmons).

    I didnt even know they were making a new Conan. Is it going to be a remake of the old shows or a new story altogether?

    To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

    Dear God...this is almost as bad as casting Topher Grace as Venom

    I like finding girls I find attractive and coming up with cool movie/game ideas (and music too).

    "TO CRUSH YOAH ENEMIES! TO SEE THEM DRIVEN BEFOAH YOU, AND TO HEAR DA LAMENTATIONS OF DA WOMEN!"

    I dunno how this guy will turn out, to be honest. As long as he doesn't try to imitate Arnold, I think it'll end up like any other Hollywood remake.

    I'm not sure "re-make" is the appropriate term for this. Conan did not originate in movie form. Conan is first and foremost a fantasy tale told in books, short stories etc. Then a comic. Then a movie.

    No doubt they are going for a different Conan than Arnold gave us.

    Don't forget "THe Animated Series" and the tv show "Conan The Adventurer".

    Hate the Rock&Roll metal soundtrack.
    Reminds me of the video game. Not all bad, but definately room for improvement.
