The Rat off Conan

May. 7, 2009by: Omar Aviles

Brett Ratner Fast-talking snatch magnet Brett Ratner has been attached to the CONAN THE BARBARIAN remake for quite a while now and as far as we knew, all systems were go for The Rat to direct the beefcake action. However, "Empire Online" recently spoke to CONAN producer Joe Gatta and turns out Ratner has left the project. Says Gatta:

Were currently in the process of hiring a director. For the past six months we were discussing the movie with Brett Ratner, and for more timing issues than anything else we had to part ways with Brett. We all wanted him to do it, believe me; just the timing didnt work. But you never know what can happen.

Did the producers not meet his "smoking hot extras for The Rat to bang" quota or something? In any case, read more about what Gatta had to say about the project HERE.

Extra Tidbit: The Rat was born in Miami Beach, Florida.

No offense to black women (i've dated some hot ones), but I do not find the William sister's attractive at all! Sorry JayMike. You can keep that booty, I'll take a pa$$ on that a$$!

HUH?

Ok so he sucks as a director. We get it. What I want to know is what's wrong with either one of the Williams sisters? Venus ok is not hot. But damn Serena is nice. That booty!

"fucking loser, no-talent, C-grade film student, cock-sucking shit-head."

I'm actually okay with this.

HATE!

Am I wrong to say he's not fat, and not a Jew?

If he's not fat, nor is he Jewish, I'll take that back, and stand corrected.

But he's still a fucking loser, no-talent, C-grade film student, cock-sucking shit-head.

I wouldn't let this motherfucker handle repairs on a moped, let alone direct a Conan movie.

I pray to Crom!!!

I prayed to Crom and he listened!
Now find somebody who will care about the project and the fans, Joe Gatta!!!
Shit, the guys from Clowns vs Ninjas would be a better choice.

@Maudibe

If you're going to be an anti-semitic cocksucker, the least you can do is not assume the name of one of a sci-fi god.

BTW - "piece of shit jew-bag", gets my nomination for most offensive comment I've read on joblo so far this year.

Thank crom indeed

Man this is the best news I've heard in awhile! I think I broke a few inanimate objects when I heard he was directing this. Namely beer bottles. Conan REALLY needs a good director. And as long as this shit is based on the Robert E Howard originals (or at LEAST the amazing Dark Horse series directly adapted form his short stories) this should be a piece of cake to make it rock, as long as there's a GOOD director. Not that fucking hack Ratner.

Never cared for Conan

The first two Conan weren't that great anyways (actually the character never appealed to me at all) so I don't give a fuck if Brett Ratner or anybody else directs it.

I hope this piece of shit C-grade film student never works again.

He's a fucking serious whiny asshole. Piece of shit jew-bag,cunty, motherfucker ruins everything he comes in contact with.

No talent, smelly, fat, bearded, grubby, fuck-up he is.

I'd love to tie this piece of shit to a wheel chair, douse him in lighter fluid, ignite his fat ass, and roll his flaming lard bag of a body down Hollywood blvd.

Maybe someone realized how much of a piece of shit he fucking is, and saved

Yay.

You know who'd be a great pick to direct if he's not completely retired? Richard Donner. He could do great with Conan, I think.

If he's retired...then either Paul Verhoven or Len Wiseman.
