Conan the Barbarian photos from the “Conan the Rebooted” article from Empire Magazine‘s April 2011 have premiered. Jason Momoa, Stephen Lang, and Nathan Jones are the prominent actors in the photos. Marcus Nispel is also partially featured. This is actually the first time Stephen Lang and Nathan Lang photos from Conan of Barbarian (2011) have been seen.
Nathan Jones is apparently playing a character called Remo, who is featured on the Marcus Nispel’s Conan (2011) Character Breakdown.
I believe this gentleman here is, indeed, Nathan Jones: though understandably difficult to recognize under the makeup, the proportions of his face do seem to match up – not to mention his sheer height. Jones was rumoured to be playing a part in the upcoming film, and one of The Pictures We Aren’t Allowed To Talk About sported a gigantic warrior in the background about a head taller than anyone else with the same hairstyle as this chap here. Being 6’11? and exceedingly well built, Jones is one of Hollywood’s go-to men when they require a Professional Huge Person with prodigious thews. Thus, this might be our first shot of Nathan Jones’ character in the film, who I believe to be the Cyclopean “Jailer” who features in the early script.
Conan the Barbarian (2011) plot synopsis: “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.” We already posted multiple photos from Conan the Barbarian, behind-the-scenes photos, and info here: Conan (2011): Rachel Nichols, Rose McGowan, New Stills, and Behind-the-Scenes Photos, First Jason Momoa Conan Photos and Conan (2011) Set Photos. The Empire article talks about the challenges of facing the fervent Conan fan base:
“Yeah, we’re in trouble alright!” The fact that Marcus Nispel, director of Lionsgate Studio’s new Conan movie, is laughing provides the first hint that he speaks here not of production problems or studio dissatisfaction. Everyone is extremely happy with the new Conan The Barbarian. He speaks, instead, of the mighty warrior’s forthcoming confrontation with his greatest enemy. Forget Thulsa Doom; forget Thoth-Amon. Conan is going up against the Cult Of Fandom. “We’re ****ed!” jokes Nispel.
