IN a recent interview with British QGJason Momoa – who played legendary swordsman Conan the Barbarian in a remake of the 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger film – has expressed his distaste for the film.
The 42-year-old actor told the magazine, “I’ve been a part of a lot of really shitty things, and movies where it’s not up to you. Conan was one of them. He’s the one of the best experiences I’ve had, and it [was] taken over and turned into a big pile of shit.
Momoa did not specify the details of his dissatisfaction. Conan the Barbarian turned out, but it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that he felt that way.
Marcus Nispel directed the Lionsgate outing, which starred Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan and Ron Perlman, with Morgan Freeman as narrator. The Millennium Films movie, with an estimated budget of $90 million, earned just $63 million at the worldwide box office. Luckily for Momoa, her career took a turn for the better after the movie flopped.
The same year as the film’s release, it debuted on game of thronespaving the way for his casting as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justicewhich led to his continued appearances in the DC Extended Universe.
Momoa will appear in the next Netflix movie Slumberland and also reprises his role as Arthur Curry in the 2023s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom before debuting in The Fast Saga as x fastis the main antagonist.
