Yeah, I remember hearing a little bit about that. I suppose it switched teams or its dead in the water. Not sure.
With Thomas' RED SONJA beig steam rolled rather than Howard's, one can only see the state of CONAN INC and their desire for a quick buck, they're even using Milius' Thulsa Doom. Theur CONAN movie is dead yet, and they re-released a 1982 production photo/ poster as a for the new film's teaser poster. So one can only wonder whats going on with it all.
Its funny though because I had brought this series up back in June, and Turd and I had a little chat about this HERCULES. http://conancompletist.forumactif.com/conan-the-barbarian-f3/william-stout-t1051-40.htm
Hope it turns out good, because I think we need an authentic and brutally heroic Hercules..closest kids had was Italian films with Steve Reeves back in the 60's.
