To prepare for his role, Jason Momoa enrolled in an intense six-week training program at a stunt and martial arts academy in Los Angeles, while still finalizing negotiations for the film.
As Jason Momoa is afraid of horses, all his horse riding scenes had to either be faked or filmed with doubles.
Following completion of the film's production, Jason Momoa (Conan) went on to star as Khal Drogo in the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones (2011). Nonso Anozie, who played Conan's shipmate Artus, would star as Xaro Xhoan Daxos in the second season of the series.
