This is not a rumor it is one of those now in production stages and is set to be shooting this year and no actors yet to be named . Most sites have it as to a release date of 2010. IMBD has the page already up and dated as 2011. A more believable time frame for release. Rumors about the plot range from a remake of the old Arnold one. God I hope not . To being faithful to the Robert E Howard original story line. Now that would be great. If you ever want to know the real Conan not the Marvel universe or the Hollywood production you have to read the original 12 book series that Robert E Howard created. The first stories was published in in 1932 and appeared in Weirdtales . Howard later committed suicide but not before writing outlines and unfinished stories for the rest of the Conans adventures. Those stories would be completed by L. Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter. The first of the seires called just Conan was a compilation of Roberts earlier work and the second was ones he wrote or was finished off by Carter and Camp.
I can tell you those books were far from the Marvel version and the ones later written about the character by other authors . Though I have read some that did Howards creation justice. The movie that the Governor of Cali did were off the mark and as a fan of the series watched it enjoyed it but it bothered me that they ripped it apart and strayed from the original characters growth from simple nomad to thief to warrior to king of his own empire to setting off to one last adventure to find his son.
This is what I hope they follow in this remake. It worked for Lord of the Rings and other recent epics . It will work for Conan also
