Leo Howard Cast as Young Conan


Latino Review has learned that 12-year-old Leo Howard, who played young Snake Eyes in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Laser in Shorts, has been cast in Lionsgate’s Conan as the young Conan.

The site says that Howard’s role is “the audience’s first introduction to Conan for the first 15 minutes or so.”

Jason Momoa plays the adult Conan the rest of the Marcus Nispel-directed movie, which is in pre-production in Bulgaria.

The film is based on Robert E. Howard’s mythical conqueror Conan the Barbarian.
