The last bit of news we heard from Marcus Nispel's upcoming remake/reboot of Conan the Barbarian, cleverly titled Conan, was that Stargate: Atlantis thespian Jason Momoa would star as the titular warrior and the ever-busy, ever-terrifying Mickey Rourke was playing his father. Now, Latino Review is reporting that Avatar's Stephen Lang, he of Na'Vi punching, Hometree exploding fame, has been offered the role of the villain, one Khalar Singh.

Who is Khalar Singh? Funny you should ask, 'cause those guys over at Latino Review also have a snippet from a leaked casting outline:

"Khalar Singh is in his 40s to 50s, Asian or Middle Eastern, Central Asian, Mongol, Turkish, or Persian, open to all ethnicities; commanding in size and manner, a warlord and formidable warrior, brilliant, cruel, weathered and tanned by the many campaigns he has waged and won. He is driven in his quest to find the Queen of Acheron and has been building an empire to do so."

It goes on, but it's a little spoilery. Just know that the phrases "demonic minions" and "master sorcerer" are used, so you should consider yourself on board. Follow the link if you have no will and want to know more.
