So Who The Hell Is Helming “Conan”?

While Nu-Image/Millenium wants “V for Vendetta” helmer James McTeigue to takeover directorial duties on the upcoming “Conan the Barbarian” remake, Lionsgate favors three other potential suitors according to CHUD.

The names that have made the mini-majors shortlist include French helmer Christopher Gans (“Brotherhood of the Wolf,” “Silent Hill”), acclaimed British genre helmer Neil Marshall (“The Descent,” “Doomsday”), and German helmer Marcus Nispel (the remakes of “Friday the 13th” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”).

Production kicks off on August 24th in Bulgaria and a star is still being sought for the titular warrior.
