Movie To Focus On Conan’s Last Days.
Word has come down from on high (or Hollywood) that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be returning to one of the roles that made him the biggest star in the world during the 80’s.
Universal owns the right to the franchise and has writer and producer Chris Morgan crafting a story for the final tale of Conan the Barbarian. The movie would act as a true sequel to the first movie and not recognize its sequel Conan the Destroyer or 2011’s remake starring Jason Momoa.
Morgan has described this movie as Conan’s Unforgiven.
Producer Fredrik Malmberg had this to say concerning the reboot:
“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 Nordic Viking 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.”
Universal wants the movie for a summer 2014 release.
