This past weekend I was contacted by actor Raw Leiba (Fable: Teeth of Beasts / The Ascension) about his reported connection to the upcoming "Conan" movie. It seems that both Raw and his brother Rolando are fans of Monster Island News, and have chosen this venue to release some information in regards to "Conan" and some other movie projects.
As it stands right now, Raw has not yet signed on to play Ukafa alongside Jason Momoa (as Conan) due to some possible scheduling conflicts. At this time he is already signed on for two films, one "The Driver" which stars Heather Locklear (Melrose Place) and Abe Vigoda (Fish) and yet another unnamed film which may be shooting around the same time.
Raw wanted everyone to know, that if these films won't conflict with the shooting schedule for "Conan" then he would like to sign on.
The actor is very excited about the possibility of working with director Marcus Nispel and to possibly prepare for the role, he has continued working out, and reading the "Conan" novels written by Robert E Howard.
Raw promises to keep everyone updated on the status of "Conan" and his other upcoming projects.
He has even went as far as to hint at a possible set visit, so keep your fingers crossed about that.
I do want to take the time to give a special 'shout-out' to Rolando Leiba, who is reportedly an avid reader of MIN. It's great to have fans that feel so strongly about what you do.
