Brett Ratner said that the announcement that he will direct the new Conan movie was premature.
Even Avi Lerner of Millennium Films said that he realized that the release was given out even before the deal was done. Lerner said that Ratner will only commit if he agrees with the budget, how the special effects will be done and where the film will be shot.
Ratner though is not even corroborating the information. He said that he is close to getting the go-ahead to direct Beverly Hills Cop 4.
