Hm, yeah, taht guy sounds intelligent, first thing I thought as I was reading the transcription. Clear mind.

Gerard Butler no... PLEASE. I won't even watch that movie... Shocked Not even in a Clockwork Orange fashion way, with clips in the fucking eyes. I just had enough with AVP2. Enough. I'm not gonna buy shit again. Shit is free. I can make it with my ass. Don't want it. Thank you.

Xavier Xens said it clear: "you propose an extremely brutal and definitive movie, and then, the guys, they do not want that, they want an huge commercial movie".

Ok, they can keep that for themselves. Don't need more crap.

With its introduction copied from the Manticore organization in the TV series Dark Angel. Even the bar-code tatoo on the neck is there.

Both the first Hitman video game and the series Dark Angel came out in the year 2000. Both having been in production for a while before makes it unlikely that either was copied from the other. The idea is not that original for either, and the recent movie is just a rendition of the game whose plot was outlined from the start... so I don't find the similarity that big a deal.
The film was ok, but I didn't jump up and down much. I liked the games, and I liked the movie. However, I don't know if the director could pull off another Conan film.

I don't recall. However the idea is as old as the barcode itself. Once you start labeling anything its not a very far stretch of the imagination to apply the same system to humans. After all, we're just so many absurd meatbags. (To paraphrase chuang tzu)

Lawsuit? Neutral

Quote :
What about that new Arnold-less "Conan" film you ask? Well, it appears Nu Image is having more problems getting the barbarian ready due to a new lawsuit. Perhaps Conan will just have to keep spinning his wheel of pain to pass the time until he can crush his enemies once more.

Conan Properties Int'l, the creator and owner of the underlying rights to the "Conan the Barbarian" films, is suing several parties, including Lionsgate, Edward R. Pressman Productions,Modern Times Group, and others, seeking a piece of net profits from the films.

The lawsuit comes as indie film company Nu Image plans to begin production on a remake of "Conan the Barbarian," which Lionsgate will distribute next year.

The film series, based on the 1930s pulp novels by Robert E. Howard, was conceived in 1977; at the time, Conan Properties licensed rights to Hollywood producer Pressman in return for five percent of all net profits from the film and its sequel.

Five years later, when the film finally came out, Pressman's firm sublicensed the film, kicking off a series of handoffs. Conan Properties sued Pressman in 1983 and that matter was settled. But according to this complaint, the chain of custody, which assigned rights to the film from Pressman to Paradise Films to December Associates to Modern Entertainment and finally to Lionsgate, left Conan Properties forgotten.

The defendants have breached the original Pressman agreement and 1983 settlement, the complaint alleges, by "failing to remit to (Conan Properties) 5% of 100% of all net profits derived from the exploitation of the first film...and any sequel...based upon the Property, including but not limited to domostic and international distribution on DVD."

It looks like Conan may be tied to "the tree of woe" for a bit longer.

Bull$hit. This rumor started with an inaccurate article.

Posted today on Conan.com by an administrator, Jay@Paradox , the "voice" of CPI:

Quote :
As Rusty has explained very spot-on, the recent legal kerfuffle has nothing to do with the upcoming movie. It is all about royalties from the two previous movies. Probably the article heading that throws ppl off, it is quite misleading. Bad journalist, may Set strike him down. The article, quoting Reuters/Hollywood Reporter, wrongly says the upcoming movie is a remake of "Conan the Barbarian", which it isn't, nor is it for that matter the third part in a trilogy. New movie. It's not going to be a kids movie. We're aiming for some good fighting.

Development is in full swing and producer Fred Malmberg (the Crom of Paradox/CPI) is meeting a LOT of ppl. Rumors will be spawned and bound to end up on message boards, news sites and IMDb. Until any entity involved in the movie (Paradox/CPI, Nu Image/Milllennium Films, Lions Gate) publicly announces the signing of a director/actor it is just a rumor. But as a fellow fan I know how it is, it is fun to get excited either way, whether you like something or not! So talk about it, discuss all you want (and we do read what fans say) as long as you take some things with a grain of salt.

If you are talking about CPI today then it means us, Conan Properties International. There is no other entity with ownership or interest in the rights to Conan.

Have a great weekend all of you!

Someone wants to have his share of money (is it legitimate or not ? I don't care !) for the two first movies, period.

That CONAN.com stuff could be damage control, as the eventual movie has been in development hell since even Threshold Entertainment held the rights way back when, and nothing budged until Milius came back on board with Warner bros. back in 1999/2000.

From what I understand Pressman was largely responsible for the formation of CONAN Properties Inc, DeCamp also owned some partve it too, not sure whats what nowadays though.

Then again, like the Rob Zombie rumor, could be all bullshit!

Yes, everything's possible.

The latest "director rumor": Neil Marshall.

Today, somebody posted on Conan.com that the director is to be Len Wiseman (Die Hard 4/Live Free or Die Hard) and that the role of Conan would be played by 300's Gerard Butler. This has been circulating for a while now I guess and of course it is all speculative. I have not been able to find any accurate information about this. However, this could just be a bout of wishful thinking as there are many members of Conan.com who are enamored with the 300 film. Don't get me wrong, I liked 300, but I'm certainly not as crazy about it as a lot of people. Personally, I think Gerard Butler is a decent actor, but I'm not sure he really has that 'Conan' look. There was also this big rumor at one time that Robert Rodriquez (Desperado/Planet Terror) would direct, then it was Zombie (House of 1000 corpses/Halloween)...There's been so much rumors surrounding a potential new Conan movie, that frankly, I'm just about to the point where I doubt it will ever be made. It wouldn't help to pray to Crom either, because he doesn't listen.

I was quite surprised by this interview..Arnold talks about wanting to be back as Conan for the KING CONAN movie and blasts the Sarah Connor TV series(which made me laugh).

Probably one of TAFS best articles in a long time imo:

Well, this is no rumor, just some wishful thinking. I'm not the first person to suggest this, but I think Javier Bardem from "No Country for Old Men" would be my pick to portray Conan in a new movie. He certainly nailed the role of a cold-blooded, killer. And he did it with great intensity and deliberation. He also has the look and voice of someone who may have descended from an ancient race. I don't know how tall he is, and he may need to beef up quite a bit, but he certainly didn't have a weak looking physique. Just look at his SAVAGE expression on the cover art below...

That interview was cool... I think Arnold is doing a good "political" job there inviting the TAF to do a cameo in the King Conan movie... So these guys are surely now even more involved in the job making the producers choose Arnoldo for the role. He has the right age as he says, and also he could play a lot of his own living experience as a powerful politic for the character. Same the movie is not directed by milius who i'm sure would like to do somehting like that, talking about the corruption of power, and the "responsabilities" of being a king. But what the fuck am I talking about, who wants today a movie about that topics... scratch Who the fuck goes to the movies to think... Nobody. The only thing people wants is entertaiment and that's all... Same and shame. How cool would be to watch Arnold in a mature movie, playing a really interesting character.

"It would be like the muppets or something... ridiculous..." LOL. Yeah, you can notice he is really proud of the terminator movies, and sees it cannot be turned into a kiddie series. Is what im talking about with the King Conan project. My big fear is that it will be closer to "The Destroyer" than to "The Barbarian"... Same and shame.

I propossed Bardem as a possible oniric choice for the role. I think he is not too tall as a cimmerian would be, but that is not exactly a problem in Hollywood... just take a look at Tom Cruise Mr. Green
