Rob Zombie to remake Conan?

Rob Zombie, whom I happen to be a fan of, is in talks to perhaps be the director for the remake of Conan the Barbarian, a movie best known for starring the future governor of California and being about a half-naked man who wields a greatsword. I kid of course, as I am excited to see this movie as well. However, when news of the potential director hit the wire, there were a great many people who were objected to it. Sure, Rob Zombie hasn’t proved himself to be a Oscar-winning director, nor has he done any other genre of film besides horror. But I think that he could definitely do this. Sure, maybe his movies are very simple (a mild way of putting it) and maybe his movies contain a bevy of curse words and sexual themes, but I have come to really enjoy his sadistic characters that he fleshes out onto the big screen. If those were his starting films (after all, he used to be a metal singer), then I have hope for him. Only way to tell would be to see his next movie I guess.
