Robert Rodriguez Producing Conan As Well As Red Sonja?!

Robert Rodriguez

We're currently live at the Comic-Con panel for Red Sonja with Robert Rodriguez, Rose McGowan, and Doug Aarniokoski and have an exciting new update for fans! A few weeks ago we officially announced that Rodriguez would be producing a Red Sonja movie with McGowan starring and Robert's ex-second unit director Douglas Aarniokoski directing. Robert and Rose's discussion, which focused on how all three of them have been huge fans of Robert E. Howard's work for ages, eventually touched briefly on the upcoming Conan movie. Rodriguez mention that details have already spilled about Conan (read more about that here) and that he might either produce or direct that movie as well in combination with Red Sonja. If you're unfamiliar with these two stories, they come from Howard's same universe.

Over the last year, various directors have been rumored to be involved on the Conan movie, from Hitman's Xavier Gens to Rob Zombie. However, it sounds like since Red Sonja and Conan are so similar, that Rodriguez might produce and Doug Aarniokoski might direct both the Conan and Red Sonja movies, which definitely makes both of these a lot more exciting as back-to-back features! This isn't officially confirmed nor announced by any studio, but Rodriguez said that it will probably happen. And if you need any encouragement, Aarniokoski explained that Red Sonja is "going to be unlike anything you've seen, that is for sure!" With the enthusiasm I'm hearing from McGowan and Rodriguez during this panel, I'm actually excited to hear this news and hope that they can show us how awesome the Conan universe could be!
