Conan the Barbarian: Kellan Lutz or Jason Momoa?

Conan The Barbarian is getting the reboot treatment from director Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th).

As of last weekend, two buff finalists were in the running for the leading man role (originally played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) Kellan Lutz (Twilight) and Jason Momoa (Stargate: Atlantis, Baywatch). But Deadline reports that as of yesterday, “another unnamed but better established actor” is being auditioned.

Conan is scheduled to start production on March 15 in Bulgaria.

WHO DO YOU THINK should be the new Conan the Barbarian?

    Kellan Lutz as Conan, lol.

    Jason Momoa, without a doubt. If you’ve seen him in Stargate Atlantis, you’d have to agree.

  • Ms Anonymous

    Do not want! I wish they’d leave it alone, period.

  • jennifer

    Please leave this Conan crap alone. Jason sh*ts all over Kellan though.

  • Chegs-HUN

    This remake sounds like crap, I hope Kellan won’t do it. Let this Jason guy or whoever have it!

  • rocky

    JASON! JASON! JASON! JASON! HANDS DOWN. SEXIER, TALLER, HAS MORE MUSCLE AND CAN ACT! Much more talented than Kellan. Sorry to those Kellan fans, but he just doesn’t have the height nor body to be Conan.

  • e

    Jason is so cool and really talented and I so want to see him do more stuff.

  • jdub

  • tedichka555

    OMG! I am crossing fingers for Kellan. I dont care if the movie gonna be good,but I really want Kellan to come to Bulgaria. I swear, I will find the plase, where the movie is going to be shoot and see him.

  • hunnybunny

    Omg, roni, I’m from BG too :D
    And JASON, of course, he’s waaaaaay hotter
    That Kellan guy is totally in love with himself

  • A

    Jason has my vote.

  • Sara

    Not realling feeling either of them to be honest. Perhaps a new slightly unknown should get the part.




    NO ONE can or should touch this movie! It is a classic. Remaking the Conan movies will be an abomination without Arnold Schwarzenegger . He MADE that movie what it is. Hollywood’s greed and lack of originality is bile inducing.

  • p3rp3tu4

    Butler HEHE

  • lucas

    @MTY: i agree that Kellan would likely do a fine job.

    actually I think either of them would be fine. the real trick will be the director and the writer’s spin. because no actor can make up for bad directing or writing. and sorry to say but neither of these gentleman is bank enough to pull in folks once word gets out of a lack in said departments. frankly with the high price of movie tickets not even Robert P himself could pull off box office on a slammed film.

    According to Latino Reviews El Mayimbe tweet:

    “Momoa was Nispel’s top choice, Lutz was millenium. LG cockblocked & voted against both. Back to square one.”

  • devin

    jason jason jason

  • Noelani

    jason momoa def!!!!! i love kellan but i got to have my fellow Hawaiians back on this one.

  • Ronnia

    Jason, for sure! He’s cuter and mature. Jason Momoa is the man. When I think of Conan I don’t think of a blonde guy with Jason please!
