An Actor May Be Filming In Bulgaria!?

This may be of interests to film fans and 'Hollywood stars' followers, but to me I haven't the slightest interest where this actor is going to film. I'm sure he's a good actor, but many actors are treated as Gods just because they are cloned in Hollywood. There are many other better actors around who are better than Mickey Rourke but because they don't hell raise outside acting don't get noticed. It's actually called attention seeking.

Hollywood hellraiser Mickey Rourke is apparently in negotiations to play Conan’s father in the upcoming "Conan" movie, due to start filming soon in Bulgaria.
Marcus Nispel is directing the remake, which is being produced by Nu Image/Millenium Films and sees Jason Momoa playing the barbarian warrior created by Robert E. Howard.
Shooting is apparently due to start in the middle of March.
The story sees Conan embark on a quest to avenge the slaughter of his people including his father, Corin.
According to the rumour factory, Rourke, 57, had been offered the role but negotiations broke down at the last minute. Apparently, however, talks have now resumed.
Rourke's star status was revived following his Oscar nomination as best actor for his performance in The Wrestler in 2009. Although he won a BAFTA for his role he was pipped at the post by Sean Penn for Milk.
Rourke was previously best known for movies such as 9½ Weeks and Rumble Fish. His career subsequently nosedived and Rourke even became a professional boxer for a while before returning to acting.
