Bran Mak Morn

GM! I'm back! Let's get started because there is lots of movie news this morning. I'll try to catch it up over the next few days.

Variety says that Universal Pictures has set Peter Berg to direct Bran Mak Morn, an adaptation of the Robert E. Howard multinovel fantasy series that Working Title Films partners Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan are mounting as an epic. John Romano is writing the script.

Howard is the creator of fantasy novels and comics that include Conan the Barbarian and King Kull. Bran Mak Morn mixes the historical with the fantastical as the title character, a mythical king of ancient Britain, forges an alliance with supernatural troops to contest the unstoppable forces of the Roman Empire.

Romano most recently wrote an adaptation of the Philip Roth novel "American Pastoral," which will be directed by Phil Noyce. Romano will write and Berg will direct the Michael Mann-produced The Kingdom at Universal.

Berg hopes to make Bran Mak Morn his follow-up. The film is the first fantasy foray for Berg, who last directed Friday Night Lights.
