Just when you thought it was safe to take a break from Conan news...

Variety reports Marcus Nispel and crew began filming two days ago in Bulgaria. Strange how they neglected to tell us that Rose McGowan had joined the cast. I last saw Ms. Gowan a'splodin' zombies with her machine gun leg in the Robert Rodriguez portion of Grindhouse, so we know she's up for just about anything. What will she be doing in Conan?

"McGowan is to play an evil half-human/half-witch."

I've put my analytical mind to task and have attempted to dissect this phrase and pull as many tidbits forth as possible. Here is what I discovered through my painstaking art of deduction: McGowan will play an evil half-human/half-witch. Sorry. Spoiler alert.

In all seriousness, this is quite the kooky cast. Jason Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan. No one A-list, but some top shelf B-listers for sure. Fingers crossed that Nispel has learned how to shoot an action scene.
