Conan of the Movies?

No this isn’t the actual poster for the new Conan movie, just something I found online that looks like it was generated by a wishful foreign Arnold/Conan fan. Recently Warner Bros. let their option on the Conan movie lapse, so its up for grabs yet again. Richard Rodriquez was suppose to be developing a Conan film, but decided to create his “masterpiece” Grindhouse instead. Some masterpiece; it barely lasted a week in theaters. Vanity projects generally don’t go over too big with the public. If I want to watch an 1970’s exploitation movie, I’ll just rent or buy one of the originals.
