The GAME OF THRONES actor, who plays Robert E. Howard’s
Cimmerian barbarian in CONAN (opening August 19), says he has penned a
potential follow-up to director Marcus Nispel’s reboot.
Crave Online spoke with Momoa, who revealed that he
is, indeed, signed up to do another CONAN, and that he has written a script for
the possible sequel. “We’re waiting to see if they’ll accept it,” he remarks.
“It will mostly be... It’s character-adapted, because I really want to get into
more of the mythical creatures, you know. We wanted to go there [in the first
one], but having CLASH OF THE TITANS, and coming out against that, we wanted to
put the budget into some other things. We couldn’t get to that level with the
visual effects and stuff. I don’t want to give anything away, but we already
have our Conan, really it’s about the villain, what that villain is going to
extract from Conan, and where as an actor I want to go with Conan. You know, no
one’s going to know what I want to do better than me.
“We want to incorporate three different things, because
obviously you don’t just want to do the [existing] story, because the fans
already know it. You want to keep them on their toes. So, I think we have a
good lock on it. Also, I feel it’s beautiful. How many actors get to go in
there and go, ‘I’m part of the writing process?’ and care that much about the
character, because he is a fan himself? It’s great. You know some people go
like, ‘It’s great. I’m going to be in my trailer.’ I want to f*cking make a
great Conan movie.”
