Daniel to play “Conan”?

15 12 2009

There’s this rumour all over the internet, that Daniel might be playing the lead in the remake of Arnold Schwarzeneggers “Conan”….

Though Daniel denied it on his twitter, I found an article about it…

ComicBookMovie attended a “Twilight” convention this weekend where Daniel Cudmore (Colossus from “X-Men” franchise) was in attendance. He briefly spoke about his role on “New Moon” and revealed a few bits of information about the upcoming remake of “Conan.”

He first said that the new film will be much darker than the Arnold Schwarzenegger movies and there are currently two contenders for the lead role; himself and Roland Kickinger.

Many of you know the 6’4 Kickinger as the actor who has many similarities with Arnold. The man is from Austria, even has a similar accent, he is a bodybuilder, and even portrayed Arnold in both “See Arnold Run” biopic and “Terminator Salvation.”

Kickinger is already 41 years old, while Arnold was around 35 when he filmed “Conan the Barbarian.” Cudmore, on the other hand is only 28 years old and towers at 6’7. This is a big/muscular man and may be the right person for the Conan role.

So maybe theres still hope? As he actually had an audition for it…so things  might not be decided YET….

All I know is, I wouldn’t mind…except for the hair…and maybe that fake tan… 😉

Below part of the Casting call for Conan:

“He’s in his 20s to early 30s, Caucasian, powerfully built, broad-shouldered, sun browned skin lined with scars. Piercing blue eyes and square-cut black mane, tall. He is a savage killer that has matured into the refinement his father tried to teach him when he was young. Conan is very smart, almost inhumanly strong, and very cunning ….”

The Director Marcus Nispel commented they weren’t looking for a Schwarzenegger look a like. Over 200 people have auditioned for the role including Paul Telfer (“NCIS”,”Hercules”) and possibly Jared Padalecki. Jared may have backed out due to commitments to “Supernatural”.

Filming is scheduled to begin in Bulgaria end of February 2010.
