Stephen Lang to star in Conan movie
Based on Robert E. Howard's original Conan novels, the film will tell the story of Conan the Cimmerian and his adventures across the continent of Hyboria.
Lang, who played Colonel Miles Quaritch in James Cameron's blockbuster Avatar, told MTV that he will take on the role of the villain Khalar Singh, a warlord, in the film.
"I have no idea how I'm going to do it," he revealed.
"I'm going to get back on a Mongolian pony and ride like the wind. I'm going to flash my scimitar," he told the entertainment provider.
The film, which will be directed by Marcus Nispel, also stars Jason Momoa in the lead role, while Rachel Nichols will play Tamara. According to rumours, Mickey Rourke will play Conan's father.
It is due for release in 2011.
