Conan the Barbarian is about to embark on a new adventure.
Following the basic 1982 motion movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and the 2011 reboot starring Jason Momoa, Amazon is now growing a drama collection titled Conan, primarily based on the books starring the character by Robert E. Howard, in accordance with Deadline.
The report says that the mission is being spearheaded by Colony co-creator Ryan Condal, Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik—who has helmed six episodes of the HBO collection, together with the iconic Battle of the Bastards—and producer Warren Littlefield, who has helped develop each Fargo and The Handmaid’s Tale.
Conan was created and written by Condal, and can retell “the classic character’s story via a return to his literary origins. Driven out of his tribal homelands, Conan wanders the mysterious and treacherous world of civilization where he searches for purpose in a place that rejects him as a mindless savage”.
Condal and Sapochnik each instructed Deadline they’re large followers of the character, and that the brand new present is hoping to deliver a Conan story that’s devoted to the unique literary collection, which was first created in 1932.
While the report has no phrase about who will direct any episodes of the collection, it’s doubtless that Sapochnik will get behind the digital camera in some unspecified time in the future. Sapochnik is one of probably the most skilled TV administrators working right now, having additionally helmed episodes of HBO’s True Detective, Netflix’s Altered Carbon and Iron Fist, in addition to Showtime’s Masters of Sex and Cinemax’s Banshee.
No launch date has but been set for the collection.
