S. Kane featurette

09.16.2009

Pulp author Robert E. Howard has another adventurer coming to life, and while he may not be as well-known as his creation CONAN, that could change if the buzz that SOLOMON KANE is surfing becomes a tsunami.

If  you're not too familiar with Howard's classic leather-bound evil-fighter (whose style was "borrowed" by VAN HELSING), MTV has a "first look" clip that serves as a nice introduction to the character and his world.

Kane is played by James Purefoy (the pre-Weaving V from V FOR VENDETTA) and is joined in the flick by Max Von Sydow (FLASH GORDON), Pete Postlethwaite (THE USUAL SUSPECTS), Borg Queen Alice Krige, MacKenzie Crook (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) and Rachel Hurd-Wood. Check the clip below.

Extra Tidbit: Howard's CONAN, THULSA DOOM and RED SONJA are also on their way back to theaters. Think we'll ever get another KULL?

Eventually we'll get another Kull the Conqueror, but it may take a few more years (or a decade). Am I the only person that is jazzed the Von Sydow is in his 2nd Robert E. Howard character movie? He was King Osric in the first Conan movie with Ahnuld, for those in the know.

I believe the title you are looking for is "Krull".

No, he's thinking of "Kull', a '97 pic with Kevin Sorbo, based on another of Howard's little known characters.

I love how next to Max Von Sydow is Flash Gordon. Could've credited him from Wild Strawberries, The Exorcist or, I dunno, anything other than Flash Gordon.

Or THE SEVENTH SEAL, or THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, or HANNAH AND HER SISTERS. But most people around these parts are probably gonna know him as Ming the Merciless, like it or not.
