Solomon Kane


It’s about time that Hollywood really began to exploit the legacy of Weird Tales alumni and creator of Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard, who wrote much more than just the Conan stories. With a new Conan film on the way, it seems that one of Howard’s other “heroes” is about to hit the big screen:

Solomon Kane (US-2010; dir. Michael J. Bassett)



The first part in a trilogy series, Solomon Kane is an epic adventure adapted from the classic pulp stories by Robert E. Howard, creator of “Conan the Barbarian.” Solomon Kane (James Purefoy) is a 16th Century Puritan soldier who learns that his brutal and cruel actions have damned him. Determined to redeem himself, Kane swears to live a life of peace and goodness but is forced to fight once more when a dark power threatens the land. (DreadCentral)
