Dolph talking Conan

Time to start getting your hopes up. Dolph Lundgren is in talks with the CONAN producers (who also happen to be the EXPENDABLES producers) about a possible role in the upcoming film.

No, he’s clearly not going to be the barbarian himself (though time warp twenty years and he’s a shoe-in) and he can't really talk about what he is discussing.

"I've talked to the producers about doing something for 'Conan,'" actor Dolph Lundgren told MTV News while promoting his direct-to-DVD film "Command Performance," which he co-wrote, directed and starred in.

Asked what type of role he'd be looking for, Lundgren cautioned that casting is still going on and whether there is a role for him at all likely wouldn't be decided until 2010. "It's too early," he said, explaining that he didn't expect to know more until "probably next year."

So who could he be? There are relatively few options it would seem, and I’d say the best bets are either Khalar Singh, described as“commanding in size and manner, a warlord and formidable warrior, brilliant, cruel, weathered and tanned by the many campaigns he has waged and won,” or perhaps the part of Conan’s father. But knowing Lundgren, I’d have to go with the villain. More on this in…2010?

Extra Tidbit: They're still trying to go with an unknown for Conan. Do people as big as Schwarzenegger even exist anymore?
