There’s a new red band trailer for Conan online and there is just blood all over the place now. Seriously. We’re gonna need to call Harvey Keitel.

Any fears that this film would not be R-rated can now be stabbed through the neck with a sword and then twisted so that blood and throat shards splash outward in a dramatic fashion that times well with a heavy metal dude screaming about how he doesn’t take any crap. (IGN)

Conan the Barbarian would like to remind you that he still has that biopic coming out this August. And what better way to do so then by standing on a pile of skulls in front of the old Simpson/Bruckheimer animated logo?

Now for questions: are those the skulls of men he has killed or the skulls of those that he plans to avenge? And if they are skulls to be avenged, do you really have time to stand around on them? Get burying, Conan! However, if they do represent Conan’s victims, how are we to know that they are an actual pile and not just a sand mound with skulls on the top-side. That would be cheating. (IGN)

Bleeding Cool got a look at what Nispel is cooking up and things are shaping up. The sets look pretty intricate and they really captured the sh*thole village aesthetic. This really is a testament to wizardry of color-correction and special effects. For instance, check out this before and after pic from the set. Simply amazing. More (actual) pics after the jump...

The first pic released showed him, what looked like, smelling a fart, completely not covered in someone else's blood. I'm not sure why water is spraying at him in the above pic, but my guess is one of those barrels they place on the side of the highway clipped him while he was trying to make the exit, and he had to lay the smackdown. If this movie is about Conan battling an army of road barricades it's going to be awesome. (/Film)

The status of that project has been unknown since then because Rose McGowan and Robert Rodriguez aren't banging genitals together anymore. Today, news that the actress has been cast in the Conan remake may finally trumpet that project's demise.McGowan has signed on to play a half-woman/half-witch opposite Fake Lenny Kravitz in Marcus Nispel's remake. Does this mean that Red Sonja is officially D.O.A. or does her agent only hang out with geeks and this role will serve as a taste of things to come? As of right now, it's too soon to tell if she will follow Brigitte Nielsen's career path or what the status is of her sleeping with Lil Wayne in season 26 of "The Surreal Life." (Variety)

Sorry Eric Roberts, but Mickey Rourke has a rubber cement habit to support.Since that report, Rourke has dropped out in favor of Gods of War. Hellboy and Season of the Witch star Ron Perlman has stepped in to play Corin in his stead and it seems like a much better fit. Also note that Rachel Nichols and Said Taghmaoui (both of GI Joe) are rounding out the cast.

BY THE ANVIL OF CROM!

Usually, news about a guy who’s made a career out of directing remakes is not very exciting; it’s kind of annoying.  The knock on them is obvious:  they’re never as good as the source material, and they’re usually flashy flicks that lack substance.

That’s what makes this piece of news so darned interesting.  It was announced that Marcus Nispel, the guy who remade both The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the Thirteenth, is on board to direct a remake of Conan.  Yeah, it’s a lackluster little bit of information but it’s good news.  Why?  Because now we know Brett Ratner isn’t touching the movie any more.

Variety has reported that at one point in time both the Wachowski Brothers (Siblings maybe? I don’t know, anymore) and Robert Rodriguez were being courted before Ratner (the former much more competent than the latter), it is still nice to know…

that anyone other than The Rat is doing a flick that could be potentially cool.  Nispel doesn’t seem like a masterful filmmaker or anything, but he’s got that little fact that he didn’t ruin the X-Men franchise going for him in my book.

Honestly, if Brett Ratner’s career was halted by an army of remake filmmakers, well, I’d be very pleased.  Even if Conan is awful, Nispel’s effort should be respected by all for ensuring Ratner did not make the movie.
