Arnold Schwarzenegger Coming Back to Play ‘Conan the Barbarian’
That's right, the 7 time Mr. Olympia and former California governor will return this summer to the big screen more than 20 years after the last installment released in 1984. At 67, Arnold says that he has been trying to get Universal Pictures on board for the sequel made since the late 1980's. For fans of the cult classic get ready. He's been spotted at the gym working out twice as hard as he ever has to be back for part three of the Conan trilogy titled 'The Legend of Conan.'
Arnold says he's ready, "It is the greatest honor to be 67 and to still be asked to come back to this legendary franchise. I'm really excited to be working on this –- to do another Conan movie." Insiders say that the sequel will be shot in the same locations and regions as the original 1982 film and Schwarzenegger is not the only big name signed on. It's been rumored that at least three original cast members will also return for 'Legend'.
'Legend' producer Fredrick Malmberg tells us what to expect from the new movie. He says that studio orders were to create a film worthy as a successor to the first 'Conan'. He goes on to say there will be some epic fights scenes that will include the leading man.
In other Schwarzenegger news, the actor is also returning in "Terminator Genisys" this summer and is in talks for an upcoming "Twins" reboot, Triplet" which has already been written.
Now, we know that not all of Arnold's movies have been blockbusters, but I think deep down everyone has their own favorite 'Governator' flick. Which one for you? Comments.
