In the '80s, the movie version of "Conan the Barbarian" has been brought to the big screen and has boosted the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Now, a newer version of the heroic character will be once again brought back to the theaters, but before it even falls into production, the movie appears to be facing some problems with news over its script re-writting surfacing.
Reportedly, the script to the Nu Image/Millennium Films' project is currently undertaking another round of re-scribbling. To do the job, screenwriters Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer have been brought in. It has been said that the script has played a key factor for further decisions, including the signing of its director.
Up to date, "Conan" has yet to have any helmer attached to the project. Earlier, it was rumored that "Die Hard" director John McTiernan and "Hitman" helmer Xavier Gens are among those possible candidates to be the man behind the lens for the tidbit. Still, no official confirmation has been offered on the matter. "Conan" is expected to be completed for 2009 release.
