Bloody Disgusting have confirmed 100% that Rob Zombie has been meeting with Lionsgate and Nu Image about directing the long gestating Conan remake.

Nothing has been signed at this moment, but an announcement is forth coming. The film would revive the original 1982 franchise that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and was directed by John Milius. While news is light on this front at the moment, we will follow-up with any immediate announcements.

Conan has a proposed 2009 release date. Now that the writers' strike has come to an end, this should come together pretty quickly.
