New Conan movie

Word is that Warner Brothers has signed up Boaz Yakin to write and possibly direct a new Conan movie for them. He was the director of Remember the Titans and is apparently a big Robert E. Howard fan. SCIFI Wire is saying that Yakin's take is more faithful to Howard's stuff than the Schwarzenegger films were. Which is good, I guess, because those movies contradicted just about everything that Howard wrote about Conan's early life.

Still, I've been looking forward to a Schwarzenegger King Conan movie since the end of Conan the Barbarian and he's just the right age to play that character now. It's frightening to think that to get a more faithful movie about young Conan, I'm going to have to swallow having a pro-wrestler or someone in the role.
