Conan director found
Brett Ratner hasn't been set to direct Conan for some time but there's been no real word of a replacement just a few rumours. Well there's another here today, and it's a good choice if you're looking for raw, visceral action in the film, Marcus Nispel.
Nispel is responsible for The Texas Chainsaw and Friday the 13th remakes, or whatever the studio and executives would like them to be called, and although they weren't the best ever, they were pretty good versions and delivered a lot of what I think most would want from a Conan film.
It was a while ago that we heard of Brett Ratner leaving Conan, and the rumours have been pretty quite quiet since, we did hear that James McTeigue was in the running, well now there's a new rumour and it's suggesting that it's Marcus Nispel who's been given the role.
Sounds an interesting choice, he could bring a strong feel to the Conan film and not instantly grate with the choice of the fans of the original films and stories. What do you think? Good choice, bad choice? Surely it's better than the Brett Ratner news?
