Conan

Once upon a time (three days ago) word came out that the top pick to direct the new Conan remake is James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin). This news came after the joyous announcement that Brett Ratner would not be helming the project anymore (Read: Brett Ratner Off ‘Conan’ Movie; James McTeigue In?) Well, apparently a bit of a disagreement has arisen from the studios involved and he’s not the only director wanted.

CHUD — who first got word of McTeigue — has now received information that while Nu Image/Millennium Films does want McTeigue, partner Lionsgate Entertainment has three other directors in mind that they would rather hire: Christopher Gans, Marcus Nispel, and Neil Marshall.

All four are fitting choices in their own right, and all might just make a decent Conan flick, but who makes the best one?

Conan

If you’ll recall, everyone’s favorite director, Brett Ratner, had a pile of movies on his desk, including: God of War, Beverly Hills Cop 4, Youngblood, a Hugh Hefner biopic, some heist movie, and the Conan reboot. Since accumulating this variety pack of projects to do, he’s killed his God of War project, and now comes word that he will not be directing Conan anymore either. And a smile gently formed upon my face. While Ratner still has more than enough work to choose from, at least now two of the more cherished properties are removed from his grasp. Now fans of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise just need to wish upon a star.

Empire Magazine spoke to Joe Gatta, producer of Conan as well as the Red Sonja re-imagining. Gatta had this to say about Ratner directing Conan:

We’re currently in the process of hiring a director. For the past six months we were discussing the movie with Brett Ratner, and for more timing issues than anything else we had to part ways with Brett. We all wanted him to do it, believe me; just the timing didn’t work. But you never know what can happen.

That seems to be the running theme with Ratner. He gathers all of these projects that don’t really fit his style, but due to these “scheduling conflicts,” he has to let them all go and concentrate on things much more fitting to his style such as Trump Heist — a movie with Eddie Murphy and Chris Tucker as a couple of janitors who plan a heist at Trump Towers.

Ninja AssassinA completely nuts new video has been uncovered that shows the stunt team from the new movie Ninja Assassin practicing their choreography for the movie.

The video is filled with some amazing sword fighting and martial arts work, so you have to check it out if you’re into that kind of thing. If this video is any kind of sample as to what we can expect when the movie comes along, then we’re in for some sort of treat here, folks. Especially if this gets a hard R-rating as it looks to be getting.

The movie is directed by James McTeigue, who directed V for Vendetta. The Wachowski Brothers produced Vendetta for him and are also producing this movie along with Joel Silver. Current hot hand J. Michael Straczynski (Changeling) wrote the script.
