Variety is reporting that Boaz Yakin will write and direct the new live action Conan feature for Warner Bros., which had vowed to make a Conan movie (see 'Conan Movie Back on Track').  Yakin, who wrote Punisher, is best known for directing Remember the Titans. 


The movie will start shooting early next year.  According to the report, Yakin's concept is closer to the Howard story than the two long-ago Schwarzenegger vehicles.
