Arnold Schwarzenegger Set To Star In ‘ THE LEGEND OF CONAN’
Deadline has reported that the 65 year old Arnold “I’m Back” Schwarzenegger will star in THE LEGEND OF CONAN for Universal Pictures. The actor who starred in 1982’s Conan the Barbarian and in 1984’s Conan the Destroyer, will reprise his role as the Cimmerian warrior in this new movie but will ignore the events from Destroyer and the most recent reboot starring Jason Momoa.
Producer Frederik Malmberg had this to say;
The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior, and this is the take of the film we will make.
He also added where this movie will take Conan;
It’s that Nordic Viking mythic guy who has played the role of king, warrior, soldier and mercenary, and who has bedded more women than anyone, nearing the last cycle of his life. He knows he’ll be going to Valhalla, and wants to go out with a good battle.
The Legend of Conan is eyeing a 2014 release date. We’ll keep you posted.
