Amazon Plans “Conan the Barbarian” TV Series

Amazon Studios has reportedly begun development of a TV series based on the classic “Conan the Barbarian” books by Robert E. Howard.

In this take, the sword-swinging hero is driven out of his homeland and deals with the “mysterious and treacherous world of civilization where he searches for purpose in a place that rejects him as a mindless savage”.

“Colony” creator Ryan Condal, “Fargo” executive producer Warren Littlefield, and acclaimed “Game of Thrones” helmer Miguel Sapochnik are teaming for the project which is being set up at Pathfinder Media and Endeavor Content.

The series has been created and written by Condal and all three will executive produce alongside Fredrik Malmberg and Mark Wheeler. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Momoa have previously played the role on the big screen, while the property has been adapted into numerous comics, video games and TV series.
