A large selection of new still images and at least one set photo — we hope it's a set photo considering a guy wearing a baseball cap can be seen striding into frame — from director Marcus Nispel's upcoming sword-and-sorcery movie, Conan: The Barbarian, have turned up online, The images, posted by ConanMovieBlog, an unofficial fan site dedicated to Robert E. Howard's most famous creation, include several new shots of Jason Momoa as the title anti-hero; Rachel Nichols as Tamara, Conan's warrior maiden love interest; Stephen Lang as the villainous warlord Khalar Zym; and Rose McGowan as the witch Marique. The set also includes the first images of Ron Perlman as Conan's father, Corin, and Nonso Anozie as the Zamoran pirate Artus.
Conan the Barbarian was written by Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly, with re-writes by Sean Hood. Here is the official movie synopsis:
A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.
Conan: The Barbarian also stars Saïd Taghmaoui as Ela-Shan, Bob Sapp as Ukafa, and Leo Howard as young Conan.
