Kull The Conqueror is getting a movie reboot, and to be honest it kind of needs one. The last film about Kull was made in 1997, starred Kevin Sorbo, and used the tagline, "Kull reigns, Kull rules. Kull rocks." There is definitely room for a much better bad-ass movie version of Kull.
Paradox Entertainment is currently working on the new film adaptation of Kull, which was created by Robert Ervin Howard in 1929 for Weird Tales magazine. Howard would draw some inspiration from this character to create Conan, but he dwells in an era predating the cimmerian's one.
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. He'll become king, just as Conan will do thousands of years later. Under his influence, Valusia ends up as the most powerful kingdom of the time.
It should be cool to see how this movie turns out. I guess we'll eventually see how they plan on going about developing it and who will be cast. I wonder if they are going to go the whole 300 movie style of filmmaking like everyone else is doing with these kinds of movies these days.
What are your thought on the Kull reboot?
