Conan Film Finds Auteur

As ICv2.com reports, the upcoming Conan movie has a confirmed writer/director: Boaz Yakin. Yakin wrote The Punisher and directed Remember the Titans. While this will be his first fantasy film, I have high hopes that Yakin will bring us the Conan film we’ve all been waiting for.

In a perhaps-not-strange bit of coincidence, Tom Jane, who starred in Punisher, now has the lead role in another movie coming from the same producers behind the Conan film: The Mutant Chronicles.

  1. As I wrote over at Cinerati, I just don’t know what to think. I have high hopes as you and the folks at Conan Properties have done a good job “keeping the faith.” But this guy’s ouevre doesn’t give me a sense what his style will be.

    I hope he does a “King Conan” story, I always found those to be the most worthy of film translation. Probably because they are the only ones long enough to truly qualify for a 2 hour film. Well…except Red Nails, but they are doing an animated version of that.
