According to Fantasy.fr, Paradox Entertainment is set to tackle a new Kull movie.Â Fredrik Malmberg, Paradox Entertainment’s CEO, broke the news that the Atlantean native will be making his way around Valusia. Native to Atlantis, Kull grows up with his family in Tiger Valley until a flood wipe his clan out. Another clan bring him up, but he stands up for a woman destined to burn alive and ends up banned from Atlantis. He sails for the continent and take up the mercenary way.

In an unprecedented deal for a licensed character sculpt, Clayburn Moore was given full creative freedom to design the look of the piece himself by Paradox Entertainment/Conan Properties, owners of the copyrights to Howard’s characters.
