Amazon Studios is developing an all-new live-action Conan the Barbarian television series, according to Deadline. The project is being developed from a trio which includes Colony co-creator Ryan Condal, Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnick, and Fargo executive producer Warren Littlefield.

Cordal has created and written Amazon's Conan story, which is said to be a "return to his literary origins." The characer was created by Robert E. Howard in 1932 for a series of serial prose stories, and was later adapted to comic books, movies, television, and video games.

This comes just a few months after it was confirmed Amazon was also developing a live-action Lord of the Rings show.

Conan is owned by the Robert E. Howard Library, with Pathfinder Media representing it in adaptation matters such as these. Earlier this year, Marvel announced that it had re-acquired Conan's comic book rights with plans for a full-scale comic book launch in 2019.
