Conan the Barbarian (2011) Poster


Jason Momoa is by own admission afraid of horses, so all his horse riding scenes had to either be faked or filmed with doubles.
Ron Perlman, who plays Conan's father Corin, previously voiced Conan himself in the video game Conan (2007) and the unreleased animated film Conan: Red Nails.
Dolph Lundgren, then Mickey Rourke were in talks to play Corin, Conan's father, but Rourke turned it down to do Immortals (2011) before Ron Perlman was cast.
The ship "Hornet" is a fairly accurate replica of a 17-18th Century Chinese junk, especially with its three square sails.
Jason Momoa enrolled in an intense six-week training program at a stunt and martial arts academy in Los Angeles for his part, while still finalizing negotiations for the film.
Rachel Nichols had a body double for her sex scene.
Brett Ratner was originally attached to direct before being replaced by Marcus Nispel.
Chris Hemsworth was considered for the role of Conan.
Kellan Lutz and Jared Padalecki were considered for the lead, but the role went to Jason Momoa.
