[BRETT RATNER] has committed to take on literature’s most famous barbarian and is in final negotiations to helm the picture, which is aiming for a release in early 2010.

Millennium and Lionsgate are eyeing a potential franchise and envision a very R-rated approach in the $85 million budget range.

R-rated is good. Ratner? I’m 50/50. He ruined the X-Men franchise but did a solid job on RED DRAGON.

No word yet on who will play CONAN.
