It’s still a few months away, but there are many of you who are really wondering what the upcoming Conan the Barbarian reboot is going to be all about. According to star Jason Momoa, it’s going to be a revenge story.
“It kind of is an origin story,” he explained. “It’s rebuilding and rebooting the franchise…It starts with his birth, what happened to his family, what happened to his father—obviously his father is killed—and him going into the pirating and the thieving and wandering and being the degenerate that he is and then usurping a throne and finding out who killed his father. It’s a revenge story, with a little bit a love in there.”
As much as I loved the original Conan, I’m willing to line up to see this take on the Robert E. Howard character.
