Solomon Kane (NEWS)

Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan and countless other awesome epic fantasy legends, was also a phenomenal author of terrifying horror fiction. I’ve mentioned here many times in the past of his excellent contributions to the Lovecraft Mythos, and now recent news has me more excited than ever that my favorite REH creation about a wandering puritan / monster slayer named Solomon Kane is finally coming to the big screen. Not much real info available as of yet, but apparently production began this month. Let’s cross our fingers and hope that Bassett’s final product is on par with John Milias’s great Conan the Barbarian from 1982, and not at all like Nicolella’s cheeseball Kull the Conqueror from 1997.

interesting. this is my favorite howard character too, i bet this will be a low budget thing though, doesnt look very promising although that poster art is pretty awesome. the directors website makes it look like van helsing 2.

Karswell,
A great teaser image on the site. For years we have heard of a possible Kane film being... lets hope they do the character some justice and leave him with the dignity and intensity that Howard gave him!
A film well worth checking out that always reminded me of Howard and Kane is the Brotherhood of the Wolf(2001)...though not written by REH its the closest yet to visualizing his kind of visciral intensity...it also features the incredibly stunning Monica Belucci!

Thanks for the heads up on this Karswell!

I too can't wait for this film. I have all of Howard's Kane stories and just like all of his work, they are top notch. Marvel Comics is doing a 5 part mini series starting in September '08
