Hounsou fuses with Dynamite on pic

Actor to star, produce Thulsa Doom film

Djimon Hounsou has partnered with Dynamite Entertainment to star in and produce a bigscreen feature about immortal sorcerer Thulsa Doom, a central figure in the Conan the Barbarian and Kull comicbooks.

Character will be featured in his own comicbook series, published by Dynamite, an imprint of Dynamic Forces, next year.

He originally appeared in the Robert E. Howard pulp story “Delcardes’ Cat,” published in the 1930s.

Doom was portrayed by James Earl Jones in 1982’s “Conan the Barbarian.”

Planned pic will showcase the origins of the flawed hero and show how his road to hell was paved with good intentions.

Dynamite’s president and publisher Nick Barrucci will develop and produce the pic with Hounsou, Arthur Lieberman and Luke Lieberman.

Project is not yet set up at a studio.

Barrucci and the Liebermans are behind a feature based on the comicbook “Red Sonja” that Robert Rodriguez will produce and Douglas Aarniokoski will direct for Nu Image and Millennium Films. Rose McGowan will star in the pic.

Hounsou most recently appeared in Summit Entertainment’s “Never Back Down.” He will next co-star in “Push,” also from Summit.

Dynamite Entertainment also publishes “Project Superpowers,” “The Boys” and books based on “Army of Darkness,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “The Lone Ranger” and “Zorro,” among others.
