Sean Hood Rewriting Conan

SuperHeroHype has confirmed that Sean Hood has been hired to rewrite the script for Conan, which starts filming on March 15th. Directed by Marcus Nispel, the action-adventure will be distributed by Lionsgate.

In the film, based on Robert E. Howard’s mythical conqueror, Jason Momoa is starring in the title role, while Leo Howard is playing a younger version. Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer wrote the original script.

Hood wrote a screenplay with similar themes for the same producers, Joe Gatta and Boaz Davidson at Millennium Films, called Hercules, which is currently looking for a director. The producers will focus on Hercules once Conan is finished.

Hood also worked with Nispel on the script for the sci-fi thriller Subterranean, which may begin shooting later this year.
