Rose McGowan joins Rachel Nichols and Ron Perlman in Conan
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I know this will come as a shock to you, but Rose McGowan is going to be playing a witch in the upcoming CONAN film. It’s cool if witches are your thing, but McGowan has got to find roles that require more from her than playing a witch. She joins a cast that already includes Jason Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Ron Perlman, Stephen Lang, and Said Taghmaoui. Marcus Nispel is directing and film has already begun.
We just recently learned that Mickey Rourke had left the project and was replaced by Ron Perlman. I’m still bummed that Rourke dropped out and the addition of McGowan doesn’t do a whole lot for me. I think this film is going to teeter on being really cool and completely cheesy, so it will be interesting to see which way it ends up.
