New Conan movie to go into production in early 2007

Funcom points to an announcement from Paradox Entertainment where plans related to an upcoming Conan movie from Warner brothers are revealed and confirmed. According to Paradox Entertainment the deal may include several Conan movies.

Boaz Yakin has been hired as scriptwriter on the upcoming movie. He is known for titles like ?‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§Remember the Titans’s and ?‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§The Rookie’s. One of the producers will be Akira Goldsman, known for titles like ?‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§Mr. and Mrs. Smith’s, ?‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§Cinderella man’s, ?‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§DaVinci code’s and the Oscar-winning ?‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§A Beautiful mind’s, while additional producers include Irving Azoff, Jon Jashni and Richard Alexander. A director for the movie is to be selected this autumn.

“We are of course very happy to see that Warner Brothers are moving ahead with one, and potentially several, new Conan movies. We believe that this will further strengthen the Conan brand worldwide. The global fan-base of Conan will likely increase significantly and the marketing efforts of a Hollywood movie will have a very positive effect on all licensees working with the Conan brand, Funcom’s Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMO), ?‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§Age of Conan’s, included.” said Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom.

Funcom has the exclusive worldwide rights to make MMOs on the Conan license up until 2023.
