If someone asked you what failed barbarian movie you thought deserved a remake what would your answer be? Kull The Conqueror right? Whether or not you want it, it's coming at the hands of Paradox Entertainment, and mercifully will be sans Sorbo.
The news comes courtesy of French site Fanstasy.fr, but that release is all kinds of French so Coming Soon got their hands on the English version, which may or may not have been translated by an online French to English translator.
Details on the upcoming reboot are nil, but we do know that they'll be delving deeply into the 80-year-old comic property to find their story rather than just making one up. Kull was actually created by the same guy, Robert Ervin Howard, who years later created Conan, who also has a remake in the works. So get ready for vampire fever to fade and Barbarian (infinitely cooler) fever to begins its reign!
Here's the poorly conjugated rundown of Kull's past via Coming Soon:
“Native to Atlantis, Kull grows up with his family in Tiger Valley until a flood wipe his clan out. Another clan bring him up, 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.”
