Brett Ratner Up for 'Conan' Reboot


Brett Ratner


The man behind 'Rush Hour' franchise and 'X-Men: The Last Stand' may be attached to helm the new 'Conan' movie.

Rumor has it Brett Ratner may be directing the newest version of "Conan". According to Dread Central, production company Nu Image Films have been offering the "X-Men: The Last Stand" helmer a position behind the lens for this reboot project. Nevertheless, there is yet any confirmation over the speculation.

Prior to Ratner's directing rumor, a list of filmmaker names has been put out for the possible helmer position. Those who have been lined up for the role included "Die Hard" helmer John McTiernan, "Hitman" helmer Xavier Gens, "Grindhouse" co-director Robert Rodriguez as well as "Halloween" remake helmer Rob Zombie.

"Conan" has been reported to be fast tracked since the studio producing it brought in Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain to rewrite the script earlier. The action adventure film for Lionsgate Films is produced by Boaz Davidson, George Furla, Joe Gatta, Avi Lerner and Fredrik Malmberg. Slated for 2009 release, it allegedly eyes Gerard Butler as the potential lead actor.

    I hope then go with an unknown actor for this role. And when I say actor I mean no wrestlers/Bodybuilders.

    There is very little chance that Gerard Butler would do a Conan film. They may want him but I would bet doughnuts to dollars they won't get him. Someone like Vin Diesel or The Rock might do it.
