According to Dread Central Nu Image, the people behind the Conan remake, are threatening to put Brett Ratner in the directors chair. This is the same Brett Ratner who a few weeks ago wanted to make a Guitar Hero movie. It is also the same Brett Ratner who directs music videos for Jessica Simpson, Mariah Carey and Miley Cyrus.
We got word today that Nu Image is offering the long-awaited new Conan movie to, of all people, Brett Ratner. Over the years there have been so directors circling this project, everyone from Robert Rodriguez to Rob Zombie, the fact that Brett Ratner might actually attach himself to this and make it a reality is almost enough to make one wish they’d just stop trying to bring Robert E. Howard’s creation back to the big screen.
Lets hope this is pure lies and another director gets attached soon. (Anyone will be an improvement…anyone!)
