Jason Momoa, star of the upcoming Conan the Barbarian, has revealed to Crave Online that he’s already written a sequel to the film. In the interview the star was asked what he’d like to do in a potential follow-up to the film, which opens in 2D and 3D theaters on August 19, when he responded “I wrote it,” before adding “we’re waiting to see if they’ll accept it.”
He said of the script’s story:
It’s character-adapted, because I really want to get into more of the mythical creatures, you know? We wanted to go there [in the first one], but having Clash of the Titans, and coming out against that, we wanted to put the budget into some other things. I don’t want to give anything away, but we already have our Conan, really it’s about the villain, what that villain is going to extract from Conan, and where as an actor I want to go with Conan.
So, I think we have a good lock on it. Also, I feel it’s beautiful… How many actors get to go in there and go, “I’m part of the writing process?” and care that much about the character, because he is a fan himself? It’s great. You know some people go like, “It’s great, I’m going to be in my trailer.” I want to @#$%ing make a great Conan movie.
It’s old news that a second outing on the big screen for the barbaric adventurer is already in the planning stages, but seeing Momoa involved in the process shows a real love for the character on the actor’s part. A lot of things can go wrong before a sequel actually happens and if the film does poorly, those plans will be quickly axed.
However, it’s nice to know that if the film is a success, moviegoers won’t have long to wait for a sequel!
