The first official image has been released (via Boyana) for the new Conan movie which stars Jason Momoa as Conan the Barbarian in the another movie made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1982 classic. Momoa has previously starred in Stargate: Atlantis and even when I watched that show, I remember thinking if ever Conan was remade, he’d be the prime candidate!

Conan also stars Ron Perlman, Stephen Lang, Rachel Nichols, Rose McGowan, Raw Leiba, Saïd Taghmaoui and is directed by  Marcus Nispel. The movie adaptions are based on the stories by Robert E. Howard written in 1932.

The movie adaption is set to be with us some time in 2011.
