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?

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