According to our good friend Randy over at TheArnoldFans we just might get our hand on a Conan the Barbarian Broadway show if John Milius has his way. Milius is best known for directing the film Conan and was also instrumental during the start-up of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) organization: it was his idea to use the octagon-shaped cage, and his association with UFC helped provide interest and investors to the start-up UFC.
Here is part of the interview that Randy had with the director.
While speaking with the great John Milius, director of Conan the Barbarian, for nearly an hour, I learned of many interesting developments for the director/screenwriter including some goods on his new Genghis Khan script, King Conan and other projects. However, one that came as the biggest surprise was that we may someday get a Conan the Barbarian broadway musical! Lookout Spiderman the musical, "Conan the Opera" is coming!
After filling me in on the latest on "King Conan: Crown of Iron" (another story), Milius dropped the bomb about another Conan project that he'd like to see materialize.
John Millius: Basil (Poledouris) and I always wanted to do Conan as either a ballet or an opera. Unfortunately Basil died but we always wanted to do that. We thought that was a great idea. I still think it would be a terrific idea. The story of Conan, of the first movie, is such a great story for a ballet or an opera.
