Brett Ratner [and] the barbarian



Hail the conquering hero: Brett Ratner, Hollywood’s young, commercial director du jour will take on yet another blockbuster franchise.

Out to prove he is more than his playboy image, Ratner, whom I determined is a startling dichotomy between frat-boy and filmmaker in my recent profile of him, is in final talks with Lionsgate to direct the action hero franchise, Conan. The character of Conan The Barbarian is drawn from Robert E. Howard’s classic adventure novels and the producing company, Millennium Films, have announced that casting for “the perfect Conan” is underway.

I, for one, am confident enough in Ratner’s talent that, physique aside, I’d like to suggest he both direct and star in the film. Based on personal experience, he’d make an excellent savage star.
