Jason Momoa

“Stargate Atlantis” actor Jason Momoa has been cast as Conan the Barbarian in Lionsgate’s upcoming reboot of the classic 1982 film that broke Arnold Schwarzenegger into stardom. Momoa is said to have beat out Twilight’s Kellan Lutz and “Supernatural’s” Jared Padalecki for the role.

Conan the Barbarian is set to start shooting in Bulgaria on March 15. Marcus Nispel (Pathfinder, Friday the 13th) is attached as director. Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2) has reportedly been offered the part of Corin, Conan’s old man.
