Sorry, Jason Momoa, you're one and done. Which - given the reasons why - is absolutely fantastic news for any fans of Conan The Barbarian
out there, regardless of whether you enjoyed the 2011 version or not.
And here it is: Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning to the role that launched him to stardom.
Universal have announced that they are moving forward with The Legend Of Conan
, a film that will ignore Conan The Destroyer and the 2011 Conan The Barbarian
entirely and pick up the story as a direct sequel to John Milius' 1982 Conan The Barbarian
. And Arnold is coming back to take up his crown and sword and play the part of Conan once again.
Producer Fredrik Malmberg says:
The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior and this is the take of the film we will make. It's that
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.
Writer-producer Chris Morgan advises we should think of this "as Conan's Unforgiven
," and that sounds pretty damn good to me.
