Trivia:

In 1993 he replaced Andrey Konchalovskiy as director on The Northmen for Morgan Creek Productions, about an English monk who gets captured by a band of Vikings. "This was inevitable," Milius said of his directing a Viking film. "I've been a practicing pagan for a long time. Conan the Barbarian (1982) was really a Viking movie but it was disguised." However, financing fell through. See more »
