Badass New Photo of Jason Momoa as Marcus Nispel's Conan
Holy crap! Each new photo we see of Jason Momoa starring in the Marcus Nispel directed Conan movie looks more epic than the last! The first one was pretty tame, a second one we posted on twitter got crazier, and now we've got this mega-epic power-photo today. It comes from Uruloki (via SlashFilm) and is about as heavily Photoshopped as every page of Cosmo, but damn if it doesn't look cool. I'm wondering if the recent appearance of all these photos means that Lionsgate may be starting up their marketing for this and maybe we'll see a trailer (and a release date) soon. Either way, we'll let you know, but for now check this out below!
In addition to Momoa, Conan stars Ron Perlman as Corin, Stephen Lang as Khalar Zym, Rachel Nichols as Tamara, Rose McGowan as Marique (instead of Red Sonja?) and Saïd Taghmaoui. This is being directed by Marcus Nispel of the Friday the 13th remake, that atrocity Pathfinder, the other Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, and a bunch of music videos. It's a Nu Image / Millennium Films production co-produced by Avi Lerner and Joe Gatta and was based on the classic Robert E. Howard characters which first debuted in 1932 in Weird Tales. Lionsgate is bringing Conan to theaters sometime in 2011, but hasn't set a release date yet.
