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.
