Last month, we passed along a report that Brett Ratner was one of the directors the production house Nu Image was considering to helm their upcoming Conan film. This morning, AintItCoolNews is reporting from a source that Ratner has been tapped to direct the adaptation of Robert Howard’s barbarian pulp hero.
I think there is at least a smal chance that this will not come to pass though. Within the past year, Ratner has flirted with an adaptation of the comic book Harbinger, the sequel Beverly Hills Cop 4, an adaptation of the video game God Of War and a remake of the classic The Incredible Shrinking Man. So far, there seems to be no real movement on any of these projects. I am hopeful this will be no different.
