Honsou To Star In Conan Film?

Hounsoudjimon BloodMore Honsou news! It appears his rumored comic book role will be based on the Conan franchise! We get the delightful news thanks to our friends at the moviehole:

A few days back the actor told IESB.net that he was going to be starring in a comic book movie trilogy. CHUD though, got a little more out of the actor on the subject – and he says he’s referring to something connected to the world of “Conan”. ‘’I kind of wanted to be quiet about it until I completely finished the project. It’s obviously a comic book that used to be part of the Conan comic book…’’

Here’s where things get sticky – CHUD confirmed with NuImage, the chaps behind the “Conan” movie, that ‘’not only are they not talking to Djimon Hounsou for the film, they don’t have a director and they’re probably two months from even having a finished script.’’

I am all for Honsou being in a Conan film; he looks like a warrior and would suit a barbarian film like a glove. With the Conan camp saying that he isn’t involved with them, and with Honsou saying that the film is based on a comic book that was “part of the Conan comic book” – I am wondering if we are going to see a new Red Sonya film? If not Red Sonya – then Some other character from the Conan universe. I am racking my brain trying to think who it could be.

Whoever the character is, it sounds like this is going to be a sword & sandal film – and that suits me just fine. Honsou as a sword wielding warrior will be delightful and I look forward to all upcoming news about this project. Now that interest is brewing round the net, I hope we get some details shortly.

  1. well this is just great news….this movie series will be big anyways just by the name conan ,,,vut the new MMO age of conan is coming out this year so that will also add to the lore.

  2. Guess he won’t be in the long awaited ‘Gladiator 2’ eh?

    In any case…I’m racking my brain here. A comic that’s an offshoot of Conan?
    I’m stumped…but…….

    Is it Zula ?

    Zula, in the Conan novels, animated series (’90s) and the Marvel Comics run in the 70’s, was the “Prince of the Wasai”. The character was also loosely adapted– and feminized- in the film ‘Conan The Destroyer” (1986) [Grace Jones]
