Jason Momoa already thinking about Conan 2 and 3

May. 24, 2011by: Paul Tassi

I've currently been enjoying Jason Momoa's Khal Drogo on HBO's Game of Thrones, whose acting duties generally consist of saying two lines and having sex with the superhot Emilia Clarke (this guy must have the best agent ever), but he's about to take on a more leading role in CONAN THE BARBARIAN.

There isn't an actor alive who's as jacked as Arnold used to be, but Momoa is pretty hulking in his own right, and looks like he can get the job done in the footage we've seen so far. Talking to Empire, he touches on the magical elements of the Conan universe, or lack thereof in the film, and something no one has really mentioned yet, sequels.

"There's a lot of magic and sorcery in the Conan stories but they wanted to steer clear [of including] too much of that because of Clash Of The Titans. They have a little bit of the sorcery in there with Marique (Rose McGowan) but I'm sure in Conan 2 and 3 there's going to be a lot more of that."

With a budgets of reportedly about $110M, it seems likely that unless the movie is horrendous, it will like make that up with overseas totals and domestic earnings, it just seems strange to automatically assume every new property is at the very least a trilogy these days. But I guess that's Hollywood for you.

Extra Tidbit: Rose McGowan's in this? Nice.

Anxious to see the 2011 "Conan" but talk of a second and third installment sounds premature and extremely overzealous at this point. Hope it rocks!?

Straight to DVD.

I'll eat my hat if any potential sequels to this film get a theatre release.

I like what I've seen so far, and word is the script is good! I think Momoa looks great as Conan, and I could honestly not think of a better casting choice!

Still undecided from what I've seen so far if this is going to be good or not. But, I will be there opening day to find out if Momoa's enthusiasm is well placed.

Really enjoying what I'm seeing so far, the teaser had me scared with the lame one line he gave, but the full trailer is exactly what I was hoping to see. I'm a big REH fan and I hope it comes through on the big screen. Call me cautiously optimistic at the moment.

I just can't get hyped...

Idk what it is, I saw the trailer and all of the pictures and I just don't care about this movie... I'm not a huge fan of the Arnold movies either, they weren't bad but they weren't Commando lol.

The second one is pretty bad. The first one is the classic. And Commando is no Predator.
