Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan were on hand at the San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon to talk about their upcoming film adaptation of the classic Conan character “Red Sonja”.

Rodriguez says that he’s not able to officilly direct “Sonja” due to current commitments, he will essentially be co-directing with his friend Douglas Aarniokoski who will take the credit as the film’s official helmer. Rodriguez will also produce while David White will pen the script adaptation.

Rodriguez also confirmed that he’s in early talks to produce the upcoming “Conan” film as well.

No footage has yet been shot, but two promo posters were seen on-stage.

Production is scheduled to begin in October.
