McTeigue to replace Ratner on 'Conan'?
James McTeigue is the frontrunner to replace Brett Ratner as the director of Conan, reports say.

According to Chud.com, the V For Vendetta helmer is Nu-Image/Millenium's choice to steer the big budget reinvention of the Arnold Schwarzenegger barbarian franchise.

Producer Joe Gatta last week revealed that Ratner had exited the director's chair due to a scheduling conflict.

McTeigue, a long-time first-assistant director on The Wachowskis, recently oversaw Ninja Assassin for the Matrix duo. The movie is due out on November 25 in the US and November 27 in the UK.
