Stargate Atlantis Star Is New Conan

Stargate Atlantis's Jason Mamoa has been cast as Conan in the new movie version of Robert Howard's pulp fantasy hero, according to Deadline Hollywood .

Mamoa played burly Satedan, Ronon Dex in Atlantis, and will also soon be seen in the TV version of George RR Martin's A Game Of Thrones. The article reckons he narrowly beat Twilight's Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) - though, to be honest, we thought there be no contest (one looks like a potential Conan, the other looks like Abercrombie & Fitch's Mr November).

The film is due to start filminf in Bulgaria in March.
