But may not involve Conan? But would deal with other Characters not necessarily created by Howard? What kind of Hyboran Age Film or Films would you like to see? :)


Terrific, Another title cut off on me.

You're limited to 55 characters, Rock. It's a title, not a novel. ;)

I dunno. Hollywood hasn't done a great job on REH's well-established characters, I'd really hate to see what they would do to the setting. I mean, beyond the obvious crap like Aquiromans and easily-slaughtered Cimmerians.

There's plenty of Conan stories to tell, no need to try to come up with something "original" since it's rarely ever that anyway.

I mean exactly what i say. I dont want to see the hyborian age without conan as it's star.imho conan and the hyborian age go hand in hand and need each other.Like most others I want to see ( which isnt gonna happen now anyway) some sort of adaptation of the original stories,before I see an original story again(though i did like the last movie).None of this expanded hyboria™ universe with other characters,akin to what has been done to star wars, cheapened and whored out at least by its own creator,lol.and again just my opinion.is that answer sufficient?

I suppose. You DO know that the majority of the "James Allison" yarns are set in the Hyborian Age or immediately after? Robert E. Howard said so. Conan doesn't have a headlock on the Hyborian Age in REH's writings

BTW, I don't buy into Hyboria™ either. :).

Howard wrote Wolves Beyond the Border without Conan. That might be worth seeing.

Well. I think I'd tend to see a film set in the Hyborian age, unless I heard it was a stinker. Put it this way, if it's 4/10 or higher and Hyborian, I'd probably see it in a cinema; 3/10, I'd rent it.

I'd read novels and shorts but I don't think a movie setting would matter. 9/10 chances the setting would get "changed" into a stock fantasy world, anyway.

THE pre-eminent (and inarguable) "non-Conan" Hyborian Age yarn (though it IS a fragment).

Perhaps they could do a movie about Thoth Amon? :)

I suppose I wouldn't mind too much, but I'd much rather see a faithful Conan movie first.

There has been a few books released set in Hyboria in Conan's time. I bought it for the daughter recently who is an AoC fan called Anok, Heretic of Stygia Vol 1-3, by Stephen York who I think did some Spartacus and Star Trek episodes.

LINK TO STEPHEN

I enjoyed the books, but took a while to read them and take seriously tbh. Felt like reading a WOW book or something.....but enjoyable all the same.
