In late January, it was reported that the Marcus Nispel directed remake of Conan had found its leading man. Jason Momoa, known for his work on Stargate: Atlantis, would be filling the gigantic, fury boots of Arnold Schwarzenegger. But as we now know, they were not done casting — because not only did they need a mammoth redhead to kill people as an adult, they would also need a devlish young child to play Conan in his early years.

Appropriately, they turned to one of the more badass kids working today, Leo Howard. According to Latino Review, young Howard has been cast in a role that will likely see him kicking, punching and serpent-wrestling his way to becoming Jason Mamoa. This will be a slight departure for Howard, whose most recent role was kicking the crap out of that little kid from Tropic Thunder in G.I. Joe. In that film, he played young Snake Eyes, growing up to be a rubber-clad Ray Park.
