Kull the Conqueror gets another crack at the big screen

Posted by LiveFor on November 23, 2009

Paradox Entertainment is presently working on a reboot of the 1997 film Kull The Conqueror according to Fantasy.fr

Kull The Conqueror was directed by John Nicolella and Kevin Sorbo played the title role.

Kull first appeared in Weird Tales magazine in 1929 from creator Robert Ervin Howard. Howard also used Kull as a template for when he created the character of Conan.

A native of Atlantis, Kull came of age with his family in Tiger Valley until a flood wiped out his clan out. He is brought up by another clan, “but he stands up for a woman destined to burn alive and ends up banned from Atlantis. He sails for the continent and take up the mercenary way. He’ll become king, just as Conan will do thousands of years later. Under his influence, Valusia ends up as the most powerful kingdom of the time.”

We have already got a Soloman Kane film heading our way, Conan is getting rebooted and now Kull. Definitely a good time for Robert E Howard fans.

Who would you like to see play Kull – an unknown or an established actor?
