'Conan the Barbarian 2' in Development Confirms Jason Momoa

The actor calls his reboot a fresh story and a true adaptation of Robert E. Howard's character.

It was inevitable, as it was set up as a franchise from the get-go. Today, Conan the Barbarian star Jason Momoa has confirmed that Conan the Barbarian 2 is in development. He also says he's seen the first film, and that its (of course) fantastic.

When asked if he would play Conan again, this is what Jason Momoa had to say.

"Oh, yeah. There are sequels to everything. There's a Fast & Furious seven, isn't there? There's like four Pirates of the Caribbean. I got to see a rough cut, and people are going to be stoked. We're not remaking anything Arnold Schwarzenegger 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."


There is no set start date for Conan the Barbarian 2 at this time.

Conan the Barbarian 2 is in development and stars Jason Momoa.

    The Conan movie starring Jason Momoa was a lot of fun. About what I expected: a solid if unremarkable Summer popcorn flick. But a sequel? Doubtful. It bombed in theatres, and unless it pwns in Blu-Ray & DVD sales and rentals, iTunes downloads, and rental from services like NetFlix, I can't see it happening, which is too bad, because I would so watch another one!

    @skywise....Just noticed?....this spam is on The Mime's hit list......that's how annoying it's getting..... all should just hope someone do something about it..

    Anyways, The Mime is hoping this Conan project really works out because the first ones were quite awesome, compared to other movies during its time...........

    I am willing to give this a chance because, well Conan is awesome. Arnold is...OK, but the character Conan was here before Arnold and will remain after arnold is no longer with us. This is a timeless character so why shouldnt the character persist on screen?

    regardless of how the first one does they can always release the sequel straight to video, which is where studios can make up any losses

    Why cant they just wait and see how the first one go's.

    I agree. They should make sure that this one doesnt flop before they even THINK about a 2nd movie, and they are already in development on the second one before the first isnt even released? Come on, that's just dumb. Hell, I never even HEARD of the guy playing Conan before they posted the images a month or so ago. Instant fail? Maybe.

    It doesn't matter. If this one bombs, studios will shy away from doing a sequel.

    I'm hoping this movie will be good but I highly doubt it will. As for a sequel that should only be talked about once the box office numbers are here.
