Back in May we brought you some behind the scenes photos of Jason Momoa in costume as Conan the Barbarian and today an official image has appeared online. The film is being produced by the Bulgarian production company Nu Boyana who’ve confirmed that shooting has recently wrapped. Therefore we should expect many more photos and eventually a trailer sometime soon. Until then check out the first pic of the new Conan…
A lot of fans have been complaining that Momoa isn’t beefy enough to takeover the role but I beg to differ. I think it’s easy to get caught up in the Arnold Schwarzenegger Mr. Olympia version of the character. He’s not that big but he looks like he’s in shape and that’s all you can really ask for. If he came on set with a beer belly and a crew cut that would be a legitimate reason to be pissed. I’m holding out any further commentary until I see the first trailer.
Besides Momoa, Conan stars Rose McGowan, Stephen Lang. Rachel Nichols, Ron Perlman, Leo Howard, and Said Taghmaoui. The film is directed by Marcus Nispel and is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2011.
What do you think of the first official photo of Jason Momoa as Conan?
