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.
Conan 2 is in development
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.
