A New Millennium For Conan

Millennium Films has acquired the rights to make a new series of pics based on Robert E. Howard’s mythical conqueror “Conan the Barbarian” says Variety.

Millennium will either fully finance or partner with a distributor on the project, with discussions to begin this week.

The new version will be more faithful to Howard’s original creation than the Schwarzenegger films, and a new script will be commissioned shortly.

Production aims to begin by next spring.
