C.H.U.D. reported that Marcus Nispel (Friday the 13th) will direct the remake of Conan the Barbarian, citing an anonymous source.

The site says that the director has signed a contract to direct the movie, which moves the film into the next gear.

The movie looked like it might stall when Brett Ratner dropped out. Earlier, C.H.U.D. reported that V for Vendetta director James McTeigue at one point may have been up for the job.

Casting of the title role, which made Arnold Schwarzenegger famous, is still underway.
