Ratner: Cop then Conan

Nov. 12, 2008by:

Although we'd heard his name in the mix for a while, it was confirmed just the other day that Brett Ratner would be bringing us the beheadings and barely clothed babes for a new CONAN.

Or did someone speaketh too soon? According to Ratner himself, yes. And that someone is producer Avi Lerner, who made the announcement at last week's high-profile American Film Market event.

"Let me make this very clear," Ratner bluntly elaborated to the LA Times. "I am not doing CONAN now. This is totally premature. For now, CONAN is only a development deal. I have a deal at Paramount and I'm doing BEVERLY HILLS COP first, no matter what. Avi shouldn't be telling you or anyone else in the press what I'm doing." Whooops... Read more about the whole shemozzle RIGHT HERE.

That pretty much sums up the status of the Hyborian Age barbarian -- while screenwriters knock his new adventures into shape, Ratner will be busy attempting to resuscitate Eddie Murphy's most famous non-fatsuit franchise.

Extra Tidbit: The Gaelic male name Conan means "little wolf".

The only reason Red Dragon was half cool was because 1, he didn't write it and 2, he had Dante Spinotti as his DOP.

"You're probably just jealous that he's chubby and gets to fuck all kinds of models." -PuffCity
HAHA Ratner's gay. But you make a good point Red Dragon was really cool and I enjoyed Family Man. I never had much respect for the man though, after the abomination X3 was. He just shouldn't make comic adaptations

Seriously, get over yourselves. Ratner is not near as bad as he's being made to be by you guys.
He did a series of funny, financially succesfull buddy movies; a solid Red Dragon movie; Family Man, a solid dramatic movie; After The Sunset a fun crime movie, and an X-Men movie that was not well received. There's a lot worse out there. Seriously.
And he seems to be a right fit for Beverly Hills Cop; it's not like he's writting the movie, there's not much fuck ups you can do as a director of

And the Conan movies were always cheesy Arnold crap, so how can he make it worst. You're probably just jealous that he's chubby and gets to fuck all kinds of models.
There's really a sheep movement going on on this site, whenever someone dislikes someone, everybody follows, and same goes for the contrary.
Whatever.

Good news

Maybe after Beverly Hills Cop sucks and no one goes to see it, then Conan will go to some one else.

Brian Singer should do X3, and just ignore the fact that BR did it.

UG...

Ratner is a peanut and corn filled piece of shit. Worst possible choice to direct any film in Hollywood.

He makes C- minus grade films, because that's what he graduated with in film school.

I don't want a C- director touching anything; except the cold hard steel he should put to his temple to blow his C- amount of a creative vision all over the wall behind himself.

I bet he's gonna want the film set in an amusement park involving counterfitters. How stupid would that be?

What a DOUCHE.

I really think that Ratner is the word "Douchebag" personified.
