    Default Conan the Barbarian - Netflix

    https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/con...nt-1234787810/

    Conan the Barbarian could be on his way to Netflix.

    The streamer is developing a live-action series based on the iconic character created by Robert E. Howard, Variety has confirmed. Conan first appeared in comic books way back in the 1930s, and has already appeared in multiple different big screen adventures.

    No details on the plot or timeframe of this new series have been revealed as yet. However, what has been confirmed is that it hails from Fredrik Malmberg and Mark Wheeler's Pathfinder Media, and is part of a larger deal for the exclusive rights to the Conan library which is currently in the works between Netflix and Conan Properties International, which is owned owned by Cabinet Entertainment. As part of the potential deal, Netflix would have the right to adapt Conan properties for film and TV in both the live-action and animated spaces. Malmberg and Wheeler will executive producers this prospective series via their Pathfinder banner.
    This is not to be confused with Netflix's upcoming Barbarians series, a historical drama told from the perspective of Germanic tribes during the Roman imperial campaign.

    A Conan series was planned for Amazon a few years back, but was cancelled during a management shift (apparently not uncommon).

    Me too! Follow the tone of Conan The Barbarian, not Conan The Destroyer.

    And no big name actors as Conan.

    Could be good. Could be ****. All depends on writers, showrunner and casting.

    They should base it on Frazetta's art.

    They got that wrong. Surely they meant regular books, as Conan didn't appear in a US comic book until Marvel started publishing their series in 1970.

    Perhaps they meant magazines? I thought a lot of the Conan stories were published first in magazines and then later as collected books.
