This past October, a weird info hit the web that Universal made a deal with producers Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan (Fast And Furious films) to bring Conan back to the big screen with Morgan possibly in charge of the script and the plan is to potentially make Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise his role as CONAN and the project is called THE LEGEND OF CONAN.
They’re going to treat this as if the old CONAN sequel (1984′s Conan The Destroyer) never happened.
Morgan, who hasn’t officially signed on to write the script yet, previously said that this project is not going to be a reboot, it’s more like an update
Aintcoolnews heard straight from Arnold himself that the project may start filming later this year possibly on filming locations in New Zealand…
“[Universal] finally came forward,”
“and said, ‘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.’”
