Fantasy : David Gemmell's "Legend" being developed - as Conan the Barbarian sequel

David Gemmell's "Legend" being developed - as Conan the Barbarian sequel

Despite being announced as early as 2012, «Legend of Conan» still has no director and no release date. In this video we explore the reasons behind the delay, the current state of the production, and which story the screenplay is based upon.

Short summary:

- The production was initially delayed due to a (frivilous) lawsuit over the Conan rights.
- In terms of earnings and franchise portfolio, Universal is in a very different position today than they were when they started "Legend of Conan".
- "Legend of Conan" not longer looks like the surefire hit post-Scharzenegger comeback it did pre-Schwarzenegger comeback.
- The screen story is based upon the novel "Legend" by David Gemmell.


What do you all think of this?

Sounds like another truly bad idea. Gemmel's books (while also being repetitive in their structure) are so different, I doubt they can mesh.




It`s far easier to start a war than to end one.

I don't get it? they want to use the story from Legend but make the character conan and not druss?

If that's the intention then who from David's Family gave that permission?

It would really **** me off if they did this mash up of 2 different worlds as I would want to see a film about druss as it was an epic book.
