The new Conan The Barbarian reboot hasn’t even been released yet, but according to the films star Jason Momoa Lionsgate may already be making plans for a sequel. In a recent interview Momoa was asked if there would definitely be at least one sequel, his response was "an eager,"
Oh no. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I haven’t liked anything I’ve seen from this updated Conan movie so far, it looks like a made for TV movie. That first teaser trailer didn't do the movie any favors either. The fact of the matter is, if it doesn’t make any money then don’t expect to see a sequel. Momoa goes on to say,
There are sequels to everything. There's a Fast & Furious seven, isn't there? There's like four Pirates Of The Caribbean.
No Momoa, there isn’t a Fast in the Furious 7, we’re currently at part 5. Momoa did see a cut of his new Conan movie, and here’s what he had to say about it,
I got to see a rough cut, and people are going to be stoked. We're not remaking anything Arnold did. It's a totally new story. The same legendary character. We're taking these tons and tons of great Robert E Howard stories from the 30s, and combining a couple and bringing it to audiences in a way that's new and fresh.
What Momoa obviously doesn’t know is that fanboy and fangirls can be pretty harsh about these kinds of movies. And so far it looks like there’s been more negative talk than positive. Unless this movie isn’t a complete disaster, he should prepare himself for an onslaught of pissed off fans.
What do you all think about this new Conan movie? Are you preparing for epicness or crap?
