New 'Conan' star Jason Momoa writing his own sequel script


Jason Momoa tends to play the strong, silent type, but if his new take on Conan the Barbarian is a hit, he may become a man of many words.

Momoa, a former model who skyrocketed to fame as the glowering warrior Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, not only steps into the Schwarzenegger role in the new Conan (out Aug. 19), but he has announced plans to write a sequel to the sword-swinging epic.

Crave Online got the exclusive from the muscle-bound star, who said he wants to take a follow-up in a more mythical direction:

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. You know, no one’s going to know what I want to do better than me.

Well, there are the producers of the movie, who may have a thing or two to say about it. The filmmakers and the studio thats releasing the movie, Lionsgate, declined to comment for this story, but one source close to the production says everyone is happy Momoa got so invested in the role, but the jury is still out on whether his script will be one they consider for any second movie.

An actor-turned-screenwriter is certainly not an unheard of concept.

    I hope the film does well. Really liked Jason since we first saw him on Stargate Atlantis.

    I’ve only seen him on Game of Thrones, but that was enough to make me want to see this movie.

      I KNOW!! Me too!!! Imagine my disappointment…

      • @darrin and jp

        And you are seriously disappointed?? I mean LOOK at him – exactly how I love my men – strong and silent. He was awesome on Game of Thrones.

    Stick to what you pass off as acting and lead the writing to the professionals, ex-model.

      Hey nerd, why don’t you man up, put on some big boy pants and go tell him that to his face. Go on. You might get your @ss beat, but that’s okay. As long as you get to share your opinion, right?

      • Mark

        Any plans to take your own advice, Joe?

        Write down your address, Mark and I’ll oblige.

      … the man was in Upright Citizen’s Brigade. That should say enough about his interest in his craft, and in writing.

    I am dissapointed about the Atlantean sword and the leather skirt he dons, also the way he spins the sword around his hand, It Is a real heavy sword.
    On the possitive side, I do feel that he has the edge close to the novels, the way he speaks and his menacing look “his eyebrows look epic”
    so all In all ditch the skirt and weilding the sword like a dagger, I hope this film does well, I would like a sequel and packing on a few more pounds of muscle mass.

    Me actor. Me write script. Me act in movie. Me lose shirt. Me be paid eight trillion dollars. Me laugh all way to bank.

    the film’s great . it departs from mediocre pg-13 “action” stuff in both script and imagery. Nichols is impeccable, Momoa less so (because of the insolent smirk which doesn’t seem to leave his face ) but overall the film is truly enjoyable.
