Charmed Star Joins Conan Cast

Rose McGowan to play a witch. Again.

She joins Jason Momoa (Conan), Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Bob Sapp, Leo Howard, Ron Perlman and Said Taghmaoui in the film, which will be directed by Marcus Nispel.

Intertestingly, McGowan was linked to the role of Red Sonja back in 2007, in a film that was to be produced by Robert Rodriguez. Red Sonja was a female barbarian introduced into Marvel’s Conan comics in 1973, though she never appeared in Robert E Howard’s original Conan books. That project is still currently gestating in development Hell. We don’t think this new role for McGowan is in anyway connected (Red was never a witch) but in Hollywood, you never can tell…
