Venkman here with some pretty interesting news. If you don't know who Thulsa Doom is he is a main character in the Conan the Barbarian and Kull comicbooks. It also looks like that Sorcerer Thulsa will will be getting his own spin off comicbook which will be released next year. Dynamite Entertainment is behind the movie and Djimon Hounsou from 'Amistad' and 'Blood Diamond' is set to star as the Immortal Sorcerer him self. Variety reports:
He originally appeared in the Robert E. Howard pulp story "Delcardes' Cat," published in the 1930s.
Doom was portrayed by James Earl Jones in 1982's "Conan the Barbarian."
Planned pic will showcase the origins of the flawed hero and show how his road to hell was paved with good intentions.
Dynamite's president and publisher Nick Barrucci will develop and produce the pic with Hounsou, Arthur Lieberman and Luke Lieberman.
I have no doubt that it will at least be a fun movie.
