First Look at Jason Momoa In Marcus Nispel’s ‘Conan’

Nu Boyana Film Studios has posted this new photo of Jason Momoa as Conan the Barbarian in director Marcus Nispel’s Conan. The film also stars Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Bob Sapp, Leo Howard, Ron Perlman, Said Taghmaoui and Rose McGowan.

Based on Robert E. Howard’s mythical conqueror Conan the Barbarian, the new film adaptation is expected to be more faithful to the source material than the Arnold Schwarzenegger films. The movie tells the “tale of Conan the Cimmerian and his adventures across the continent of Hyboria on a quest to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village.”

Conan is scheduled to hit theaters in 2011.
