Stephen Lang, who played the tough as nails, nearly impossible to kill, marine-turned-mercenary Colonel Miles Quaritch in Avatar, will portray Khalar Singh, the villain in Millennium Films’ reboot of the Conan franchise, which is being directed by Marcus Nispel. 

Lang confirmed his participation in the new Conan film when he was interviewed by MTV at the Academy Award show.  Lang will join a cast that includes Jason Momoa and Leo Howard as Conan (see “Young Conan Chosen”) and Rachel Nichols as Tamara (see “Rachel Nichols in Conan”).
