Conan and John Carter News

It's the first nice day in a long time weather wise. Now for some news on a Cimmerian and a Virginian...
First up Coming Soon has confirmed that Avatar star Stephen Lang has been signed to play the villain in the upcoming Conan reboot http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=64029 Lang will play Khalar Singh in the film opposite Jason Momoa's Conan. The film is supposed to start shooting this month.

Still shooting is John Carter of Mars and now a new interview with actor Bryan Cranston is up http://www.scificool.com/bryan-cranston-sheds-some-light-on-john-carter-of-mars/ Among his revelations he is playing a "northern colonel" who is chasing John Carter around because the government needs him and that its apparently his character that causes John to enter the cave that transports him to Barsoom. It makes you wonder when did Andrew Stanton stop reading the books and just decided to make it up himself.
