Since the latest news hinted at a soon to be started shooting of the new Conan movie, this news reported by geeksofdoom (via CB) hints at the fact that Ratner might just miss his opportunity to ruin bring our most beloved Cimmerian to life.
Ratner’s next movie seems to be a team-up project of Chris Tucker and Eddie Murphy called Trump Heist. Since it was stated that his next project will neither be Beverly Hills Cop 4 nor Conan (and he said himself that BHC4 would come before Conan), the chances are very good that he will not be the director for the new Conan movie, since even a very effective and on-time working Ratner cannot pull off two movies within less than half a year to meet the summer shooting plans for Conan.
Lets see how this turns out and if Ratner is just as unhappy about this leaked information as he was about Lerner leaking he was on Conan. Hollywood’s a never ending tornado of rumors and missed opportunities, so you never know what might blow up around just around the corner.
