Conan the Barbarian (aka Conan the Cimmerian, from the name of his homeland, Cimmeria) is a famous character of heroic fantasy created by American writer Robert E. Howard in 1932 via a series of fantasy stories sold to Weird Tales magazine
Since his debut Conan has been adapted to many other supports from comic book to tv, video game and cinema.
A new Conan movie has been decided with a release set for 2011.
Here's the plot:
"The story revolves around a child, who is sold into slavery and ends up growing into a man seeking revenge against the warlord who massacred his tribe."
Some of you may remember a movie dating back to 1982 starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan:
Schwarzenegger's movie was quite good actually.
I hope it this last remake will be as much interesting or even better!
