Brett Ratner Talks “Conan” Casting

Despite reports dismissing his involvement, Brett Ratner still wants to be involved with the “Conan The Barbarian” reboot and talked with MTV News recently about the casting.

“It should be an unknown. Conan is kind of iconic. it’s kind of like when you do Superman. it’s difficult to fill those shoes but they came up with a new Batman, they came up with a new James Bond, you know?” says Ratner who doesn’t seem aware both Christian Bale and Daniel Craig were decently known before taking on those roles.

The project remains in development while Ratner gets to work on a fourth “Beverly Hills Cop” film to shoot sometime this year.
