First it was rumored to be Xavier Gens, then Rob Zombie, and now another name has been suggested as the director for Conan. IGN.com states that British filmmaker Neil Marshall has also been put into the running.
The screenwriting team of Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer have recently begun work on the script for film, which will bring the classic character from Robert E. Howard's pulp novels back to the big screen.
Whether it is Gens, Zombie or Marshall behind the camera, expect Conan to be a violent and bloody fantasy film. What is known is that no director will be hired until the script has been completed.
