As of the weekend, the favourite to replace director Brett Ratner (who has apparently dropped out due to a ‘scheduling conflict’) on the remake of “Conan the Barbarian” was James McTiegue.

But that was the weekend, and as CHUD will attest, a lot can happen in a couple of days.

Since posting the McTiegue scoop, CHUD has recieved intel suggesting McTiegue is merely one of several directors being considered for the captain’s chair on the NuImage/Millennium project. Ya see, the “V for Vendetta” director is who NuImage/Millennium want, but distrib Lionsgate also has a say, and they’re not as interested in the Wachowski AD.

Also in the mix, according to the site :

Neil Marshall (“Doomsday”, “The Descent”). Though he’s not exactly a name that means much box-office wise (since most of his films have flopped), I agree with Devin in that Marshall’s an excellent choice. He actually makes movies, as opposed to visually-stunning shit that’s all style over substance.

Marcus Nispel (”Friday the 13th”, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”). Now what was I just saying?

Christopher Gans (“Brotherhood of the Wolf”, “Silent Hill”). A “Conan” movie from the director of “Brotherhood of the Wolf”!? Yes please! A “Conan” movie from the director of “Silent Hill”!? No thanks!

The new Schwarzenegger-less “Conan” is due to start lensing in Bulgaria in August, so they’ll likely have a director – ideally – sooner rather than later… Maybe even a ‘Conan’ (Christopher Showerman is keen for the gig! Can anyone help get him before the casting director?!) too.
