We hear rumblings today that Bret Ratner has been offered the Conan job. We get the following scoop from our friends at Dred Central:
We got word today that Nu Image is offering the long-awaited new Conan movie to, of all people, Brett Ratner.
I’ m not going to get too worked up about this news. We’ve heard so many directors names come and go; I’m guessing Ratner will follow suit. If however, this news is true, and Ratner’ s the one that will direct Conan – I will be pissed. The guy doesn’t have the chops to give Conan fans what they need.
I don’t hate Ratner, and think some of his films are decent, but decent isn’t what I want from Conan the Barbarian. I demand the stuff of legend and lore.
I hope this news is fake; what about you?
