Splendid Film has acquired director Markus Nispel’s Conan for German-speaking territories and the Benelux countries. The film will be distributed in North America by Lionsgate. Variety says the movie was sold to Splendid at last month’s American Film Market – you can see the sales art used to promote the film there below.
Produced by Avi Lerner’s Nu Image Films, the $90 million fantasy epic is seen as a remake of John Milius’ 1982 classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as well as a loose adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s original pulp stories.
Cast members have yet to be announced.
