Amazon Developing Conan The Barbarian TV Series

Amazon may have already acquired the Lord of the Rings TV series, but they’re not stopping there!

Deadline reports that Amazon is also developing the drama series Conan, based on the book written by Robert E. Howard.

The TV series comes from Colony co-creator Ryan Condal, Game of Thrones director Miquel Sapochnik, and Warren Littlefield, an executive producer on both Fargo and The Handmaid’s Tale.

Condal created the series and at least wrote the pilot, with Conan retelling the classic character’s story based on his literary origins, not previous movie or TV appearances. After being driven out of his tribal homeland, Conan wanders a mysterious and treacherous world of civilization, searching for purpose in a place that rejects him as a mindless savage.

Sapochnik will direct the pilot.

Aside from his Colony experience, Condal is adapting Logan’s Run for Warner Bros. and previously wrote Hercules for Dwayne Johnson.

Previously, Conan was been adapted into a number of big-screen films including the most famous starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. There have also been two animated TV series over the years, but this will be Conan the Barbarian’s first live-action appearance on “TV.” (Does Amazon count as TV?)
