One of the most surprising pieces of news to come out of the entertainment industry in 2012 was the fact that the former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was actually considering starring in The Legend of Conan, a sequel to the franchise that ultimately made him who he is.
In a recent interview with Ain’t it Cool (via Coming Soon), Schwarzenegger went into some detail on how the project is coming along.
Universal came forward and made the following statement: “You’re absolutely right. The previous regime has missed the boat here. We want to pick it up. We’re going to buy the rights and we’re going to be serious about it and make a quality film with an A-director and with A-writers and so on.
And we want you to participate in this. We want you to star and you to play Conan. We’re going to take a story where Conan is at that age so it’s totally believable and you’re not looking like a 30-year old action guy.”
It looks as though Arnold, Universal, and an A-list director could be gearing up for another jab at Conan as soon as possible!
