It seems that director Brett Ratner is off the upcoming Conan remake. While talking to producer Joe Gatta on the Robert E. Howard-created property, Empire Magazine confirmed that Ratner has parted ways from the production, which is still scheduled to begin shooting in Bulgaria on August 24, 2009.
"We're currently in the process of hiring a director," he told us. "For the past six months we were discussing the movie with Brett Ratner, and for more timing issues than anything else we had to part ways with Brett. We all wanted him to do it, believe me; just the timing didn't work. But you never know what can happen."
The producer also added that Red Sonja isn't expected to begin production until sometime next year. To read the full report, click here.
