Wich they could give Milius the direction , but why they did not ? did they even consider? is Milius even interested ???

We want Milius !

And important is also tha thte theme musics are kept very much close to the original whoever will be the composer ... a good figure I woudl see for the role might be Ramin Djawadi , the author of the game of Thrones Soundtrack .

John Milius will not be directing LEGEND OF CONAN.
Here are two reasons why:
1) He will not direct someone else's script to his own original movie.
2) Although his health has said to have improved, it is unrealistic that, after suffering two debilitating strokes, he will be able to.

Besides that, if you have not already read his views on the ill fated KING CONAN: CROWN OF IRON project, here is a transcript of an interview he did with thearnoldfans back in around 2007. Bear in mind, this interview was done BEFORE he suffered his first stroke.

TheArnoldFans: Was King Conan officially grennlit by WB in 2002?
John Milius: It was never greenlit. I signed a contract to write it and I wrote it. You know who stopped it? It was really the Wachowskis at Warner Bros. I was going to direct it but they jacked around with it and they wanted to make 'THEIR' movie and kept giving me vague stupid notes and stuff. I don't know if they had any intention on ever making it.
TheArnoldFans: I always thought Arnold dropped the project because he headed toward the Governor's chair. So Arnold never pulled the plug then?
John Milius: No, Arnold never pulled the plug. He still would like to do it, I think.
TheArnoldFans: If he wants King Conan to be his comeback movie, would you still direct it?
John Milius: I wouldn't direct it. I don't think so. I think I have one big movie left in me. But I don't know, maybe I'll be so rejuvinated that I'll want to direct something else too? But King Conan is a terrific thing and a great thing for him to do. But I think he should get a young director for it.
TheArnoldFans: Oh, I don't know about that...
John Milius: Yeah, there are not a lot of good, young directors.

What do we know of this script ? It will derail so much from the original Milius Vision ? He won't at least be interpreted as consultant ?... its weird to make a sequel to his movie and then not even have his opinion in the new movie ...

The first draft of the screenplay has been written by Andrea Berloff. An unconfirmed report by the arnoldfans in December states that Will Beall (GANGSTER SQUAD) has polished the script for Universal and they are excited by it.
As for the story itself.... what I have heard does sound promising and in keeping with the spirit of Milius, if nothing else.

This thread was supposed to support the petition, not to troll it. Laughing

Of course there are many reasons why Milius cannot direct this movie, I can add a few more if you wish. But couldn't that perfectly be discussed in a thread about "reasons why it's hard for him to direct"? You are perfectly free to say whatever you want to say on this forum, nobody is questioning that. What I want to say It's that's a little frustrating working on a video to be spread hoping for a wish to be heard, and then being trolled on the very same thread it was born.

So I hope you understand this is not exactly the thread to be negative, WHEN IN FACT IT WAS CONCEIVED FOR THE TOTAL OPPOSITE. Nobody is forcing nobody for support, do it if you simply share the wish and want to increase the wishing energy. And if you don't, it's ok. But please don't troll, lol  Wink

If you (for whatever reason) think movie makers doesn't read this forum (which is the main and only one dedicated solely to the Conan cinematography), you are wrong my friend. We are little, few and desorganized, but they come here to read what we think. They of course al so visits Conan.com but the information they look for on each site is quite different. Then of course they do what they choose to. But having the chance to be heard, it's ludicrous we choose to remain passive like lambs and not fighting the chance to manifest ourselves being, maybe, a little diminute (and uncredited, but who cares) part of the creation process of the movie.
So keep that in mind. If you want to believe it, that is. If not, well you are free not to. I'm simply asking, my brother. Wink

While I could take umbrage at your use of the term "troll" in order to describe my comments, I can only surmise that you have no clear distinction of the meaning of the word.
There has been no abuse of rules or guidelines to what I have posted on this thread.
You are of course free to support and start all the petitions you want but, contrary to what you yourself have said, there has been no petition started to get John Milius to direct LEGEND OF CONAN.

No, of course you haven't abused any rules or guidelines, brother. Who spoke about that?? We are in free will land here. The only thing it's being said is me telling you how I feel about something, and you (apparently) answering you don't care. Of course you dind't break any rules for not caring, brother. But yes, of course you must confront me now for kinda, hurting my barbaric feelings.  Wink  

I am speaking you friendly and in a good mood, brother. I hoped the use of "lols", "winks" and stuff made you understand the "trolling" accusation was tongue-in-cheek. Please know I didn't mean to insult saying "troll" (if you truly was one be sure your head would already be hanging from the Forum trophy wall long time ago) Wink .

Please re-read what I wrote again, taking into account the tongue-in-cheek tone and I truly hope you can understand my point this time.
If not, of course you can keep writting whatever opinion you have, that never breaks any rule so feel safe on that side. Plus I am 200% aware you wrote your comment without the slightlest TRUE trolling intention. I am even aware that it's very probablyNOT that you actually don't give a shit about this, but simply that I probably need to explain myself better:

Of course there is no official petition for Milius to direct. Guess why? Because a petition must be born somewhere in the fandom world first and then grow before becomming official. Now, guess where the idea for the petition was born, and guess why I am lamenting about the lack of support from you, barbarian members of the ONE AND ONLY Milius' movie dedicated forum on the whole web.

So this is just an empathy issue. That, and a little awareness, is "simply" what I'm asking for to you.

If there is any empathy to be had, it is with John Milius himself.
Realistically, I think the best we can hope for is that John is involved in some way in an advisory capacity. I'm guessing only Arnold could get him to do that.

Well, I asked friendly for your understanding and seems you are unable to swim that lake. Oh well... Rolling Eyes

Have fun discussing your realistic hopes with people you can feel empathic with. Wink

There is nothing either malicious or friendly in facts. I feel you are painting unrealistic expectations is all.

Also, my posts were in reply to questions raised by Prometheus.


Love

Othnar.

The Legend of Conan writer says his script follows the Milius original material more than Howard's. YES!
"We look at all the source material and we love things that kind of speak to that tone. We’re incredibly respectful to Howard. I’m a huge fan of the stories and books, but I’m a super-huge fan of the first movie, because that crystallised and distilled it all for me. Milius just killed it. He did such a good job. And Legend Of Conan is really resonant and it really digs into the legacy of that original film. I'm already very proud of it."

I am heartened by Chris Morgan's passion for the project and Will Beall's commitment.
Next stop- signing a director.

Zak Knutson, close friend of John Milius and director of the 2013 documentary, MILIUS, was asked by MANLY MOVIE if John would be able to direct the new CONAN movie.
His answer?
"Not a chance, unfortunately."
