The first spy pictures from behind-the-scenes of next year’s fantasy action film Conan have hit the net and thanks to the heads up by our friends at Collider, we’ve got them for you to look at as well. It would seem that the website Operation Kino has a spy amongst the crew on the set of the new film and he/she sent them along.
As with most behind-the-scenes photos, it’s mostly just pictures of buildings and props, with the occasional crew person or extra haplessly walking through the shot. Today however, is different because this spy managed to snag a couple of pictures of Jason Momoa dressed (or half-dressed if you will) in full Conan garb.
What you must remember is that these are not professional, high quality stills and were most likely taken with an iPhone or a low-end digital camera, but it was good enough to do the job. Quiet Earth has a couple of NSFW photos which include some lovely wench’s boobies that I can’t post on our family friendly site but I’ll link to at the bottom of the gallery.
The Conan remake/reboot/whatever has long been the works with the Wachowski brothers (The Matrix, Speed Racer) attached at one point trying to get their script green lit. Eventually, Marcus Nispel (Pathfinder) was chosen to direct Conan and Hawaiian muscle man Jason Momoa (Stargate: Atlantis) was cast as The Barbarian. Starring alongside him is Stephen Lang (Avatar), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Rose McGowan (Machete), and Rachel Nichols (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra).
Enjoy the gallery below:
The medieval houses are about what we’ve come to expect for a fantasy flick set in a non-existent world and time and so are the wagons and warriors; but why is Conan wearing a dress or what could actually be a set of gaucho pants? Hopefully a better picture of Conan will be released soon and we can get a better comparison between him and the original Conan from the 80s.
The movie is “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.”
What do you think about the first set pics of Conan and what are your first impressions of Jason Momoa dressed as Conan?
