So who’s directing the film?

Marcus Nispel.

I thought it was Brett Ratner?

Brett Ratner was never officially tied to the Conan film, but was apparently in talks with the producers, and the internet was shortly aflame with indignation at the prospect.

What production studio is making the film?

Four production companies are involved in financing and producing Conan: Lionsgate, Millennium Films, Nu Image Films, and Paradox Entertainment.

Will they use Basil Poledouris’ theme for this new film?

No. In an interview for, Howard scholar and editor Patrice Louinet said “I can tell only tell you that it won’t be rock music (as in 300 or Clash of the Titans.) It won’t be a Poledouris 2 either.”

Who’s doing the visual effects?

Shaun Smith and Scott Wheeler, the creature designer and makeup artist of 300, have signed on.

When is it coming out?

19th August, 2011.
