Rourke is out, Perlman is in.

Ron Perlman has been cast as Corin in the reboot of Conan the Barbarian, which begins shooting later this month.  Mickey Rourke was previously in talks to play that role, Conan’s father, but that deal never closed; so instead we have Perlman playing the iconic role.

Conan will be played by Jason Momoa (formerly a Hawaiian model).

Perlman has been doing quite well for himself these past few years – from playing the title role in the two Hellboy movies (with the sequel being even better than the first!) to one of the leads in the brilliant FX show Sons of Anarchy (seriously, the world needs more Kurt Sutters!!).
