Recently interviewed by British GQ, comedian Jason Momoa notably returned to “Conan”, a remake of the famous film with Arnold Schwarzenegger. A real disappointment for the actor who played the Cimmerian warrior.
Released in 2011, Conan, the remake of the famous feature film worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the early 80s, did not convince many people. With an average of 1.7 out of 5 by AlloCiné viewers, it was also criticized by the press, and even seems to have represented a real disappointment for its main performer.
Indeed, recently interviewed by British GQJason Momoa, who played the Cimmerian warrior in Marcus Nispel’s film, did not hide his bitterness about the feature film which gave him his first leading role:
“I’ve been in a lot of things that really sucked, and movies where it’s not up to you anymore”he confided. “Conan was one of them. It was one of the best experiences I’ve had, and it got picked up, and turned into a whole lot of sh*t.”
Following Jason Momoa’s remarks, Marcus Nispel, the director of Conan, also took the floor, abounding in the meaning of the actor and evoking the multiple difficulties he had encountered during production:
“As a director, in this system, you are like a dog on many leashes”said Nispel at the microphone of People.
“Trying to direct Conan under these circumstances was the worst experience I’ve had, and I’m unhappy with the outcome. I’m glad, however, that none of this has hampered Jason’s career. [Momoa]. I still assume the decision to have made Conan with him.”
