Netflix is working on a new Conan the Barbarian series

Netflix is developing a new live-action series based on Robert E. Howard’s Conan.

According to Deadline, Fredrik Malmberg and Mark Wheeler’s Pathfinder Media, is the first in a deal between Netflix and Conan Properties International, owned by Malmberg’s Cabinet Entertainment. The deal gives Netflix the exclusive option to acquire rights to the Conan literary library and develop works across TV and film, both live-action and animated.

Arnold Schwarzenegger played the character in the 1982 film, Conan the Barbarian, and the 1984 sequel Conan the Destroyer. In the 2011 Conan the Barbarian reboot, produced by Malmberg, the title role was played by Jason Momoa.

Two years ago, a Conan drama series, based on the works by Howard, was in development at Amazon from Ryan Condal, Miguel Sapochnik, Warren Littlefield, Pathfinder Media and Endeavor Content.

If they go back to the short stories and stick closer to the original character, then that will be amazing. Don’t get me wrong I love the Arnie movie, but some of the changes John Milius did to the origin of the character just moved it a little outside that of the original.

Lots of potential for greatness if they get it right.
