Who will play Conan? If he is hot enough my wife might be amenable to us watching the show, which means I might be able to watch the show. But there needs to be a plot. She watches GOT because there is a plot.

One problem with Conan is that there aren't that many characters. Maybe in the last half of the comic run there were some more supporting characters, but in the first 100 or so issues you have Red Sonja and Belit. Conan beheading some monster every episode may get boring if he has nobody to share his adventures with.

Miguel Sapochnik GoT directed episodes:

- The Winds of Winter

- Battle of the Bastards

- Hardhome

- The Gift

My faith in this new production just went through the roof! Some of the best episodes every across the GoT seasons.

When was this?

I'd heard the kid from the last Conan movie and Disney's "Kicking It" was pushing for a tv show with Conan as an 18-19 year old.  Is this it ,perchance?
