As for Conan, a number of actors tried out for the lead role in the new version including Kellan Lutz, but Jason Momoa won over producers. Jason will star alongside Ron Perlman and Rose McGowan. The action flick slays into theaters this August.

    "Jason is the definition of a rising star. He will absolutely be the next unstoppable male action hero, and we are so proud that it will be because of this film."
