    The Legend of Conan (TBA) - Arnold Schwarzenegger

    Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Legend Of Conan Will Be Brutal Sequel, Bringing Back Some Original Cast

    Once Arnold Schwarzenegger is done trying to breath new live into the Terminator franchise with Terminator Genisys, he'll move onto his next franchise as he prepare to return to the Hyborian age in The Legend of Conan.

    Producer/co-writer Chris Morgan says the new film is not a reboot, but instead will be a direct sequel to John Milius’s classic swords & sandals fantasy film Conan: The Barbarian, according to an interview with The Arnold Fans:

    Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the ’82 film…but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a thief, a warrior, a pirate, a king, a legend — and is now an older man. Think Unforgiven…with a sword-wielding barbarian.
    Milius was a visionary. And a hero of mine. He established a milieu that is stunning and violent and clear — incomparable. The goal, the dream, is to live up to his world. To make it worthy. And to expand on it in a truthful way that audiences will embrace. We’re very lucky that the architects of this new film — the writer, the producers, the studio and most of all, Arnold — who is Conan — are all first-generation fans who either worked on the film or who came along for the ride, cheering from their theater seats opening night. We plan nothing more than to immerse ourselves in the world Milius envisioned from Robert E. Howard’s unforgettable stories and Frank Frazetta’s stunning artwork. I can’t give specifics (nobody likes a spoiler!), but know we are honoring the locales, the religions and the traditions of the ’82 film.
    Our marching orders from the studio were to create a film worthy as a successor to the 1982 film, which was pretty brutal. To Conan it’s not about fancy sword moves; it’s about the fastest and most effective way of disposing of your enemy. A dance of death, maybe, at least primal. In my opinion, Conan is beloved because of his political incorrectness. He doesn’t think, he just acts. People can relate to the freshness of somebody who doesn’t give a damn about civilization — in fact, despises it. At the same time he is a magnificent fighter, leader and friend.
    Morgan also teased that at least three actors from Conan: The Barbarian will be returning to reprise their roles in Legend of Conan, though he wouldn't say who, and that he's hopeful production can begin as soon as this fall, once Schwarzenegger is done promoting Terminator Genisys.

    Terminator Genisys opens July 1.
    Man I seriously think Arnold is finished. Does anyone think that The Terminator reboot is going to work? And a Conan reboot? Man I just don't know about either of these working out.

    I don't think Arnold can be a major player in a movie, but if you have a great cast behind him and around him he'll do fine. If want to see maybe's Arnold's best performance as a Actor watch Maggie.

    I'm not sold on Terminator Geniwhatever because it looks like a hot mess, but this Conan movie is a sequel with him as an older Conan. That could be fun.

    I just don't see the mass appeal to it at this point.

    Eh, if they keep it under a $90 million budget it could work. That's about what the last one in 2011 cost. At the very least I can buy Arnold as an aging Conan more than I could as a SWAT team leader or the old Sheriff characters that he's played recently.

    Re: The Legend of Conan (TBA) - Arnold Schwarzenegger

    I was going through his movies at boxofficemojo

    I almost crapped myself reading the totals for Escape Plan

    Total Lifetime Grosses
    Domestic: $25,135,965 18.3%
    + Foreign: $112,192,336 81.7%
    = Worldwide: $137,328,301

    WTF? LOL 112 Million foreign? That's insane.

    Yeah we always see crazy, drunk King running a Kingdom all the time ala from Game of Thrones. Still say and I'll keep plugging it, Arnold will be known for his Predator movie, and Terminator movies, but Maggie really changed my mind about him as a Actor.

    So according to multiple sources this movie isn't going to happen now.

    There's been rumblings that they may try to adapt it into a tv show instead. Not surprised though, it was supposed to start shooting back at the end of 2015.

    Tv show adaptions of movie franchises seems like the best bet at this point. Pretty cool way of seeing how you can go into deeper detail more so than a movie.

    Especially if it ends up on something like Hulu or Netflix and they can get the budget to bring Arnold into the mix.

    Yeah I rather see it on Netflix rather than a full length feature and lose loads of money. We can make Arnold as Conan's Father, I imagine were going back to the beginning again origins of his greatness and all?

    The idea was actually to have him play an aged Conan and the movie was meant to play like Unforgiven.

    Re: The Legend of Conan (TBA) - Arnold Schwarzenegger

    If they decided to go the TV adaptation route then Arnie could play old Conan, do the Unforgiven thing, and if it's a success and they wanna make more they can get him to be the old warrior telling tales of his adventures and use him as the book end for each episode or narrator or whatever. That might have legs.
