‘Conan The Barbarian' and Arnold Reunited: Universal Reboots Franchise
 
Quote:

EXCLUSIVE: Universal Pictures has made a deal for The Legend Of Conan, an action film that will star Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his signature roles as Robert E. Howard’s mythic barbarian. The deal brings Conan and Schwarzenegger back to Universal, which released the first film that launched Schwarzenegger’s movie career back in 1982. Universal has world rights on the film.

Wow, really? I think it might be a little late for a sequel.

They're not rebooting anything. They're simply ignoring the Momoa film and "Conan the Destroyer". It sounds to me like they're taking another crack at John Milius's "King Conan" script, or at the very least their own version of that story.

The Momoa movie might not have been the greatest, but I though Momoa himself did alright in the role.

Ah, whatever, Arnold's obviously the bigger box office draw. I am kind of interested in seeing how this all turns out.

Great. But Arnold has a lot of projects in development. I wouldn't mind seeing this happen, but who knows if it will.

Should be interesting to see if Arnie will use this as the impetus to try and really bulk up again.

Momoa was solid as Conan (and truer to the character than Arnold was), but yeah, that was just a terrible movie.

It was not bad. If they do an another i still prefer Momoa. Maybe Schwarzy could be a mentor or something.

Arnie would be about the right age for Conan of the Isles, I suppose.

Hopefully JEJ will be reprising his role as Thulsa Doom's head.

Any new Conan film must feature at least one of the following:

I was hoping for a King Conan film since the moment I saw that shot of him on the throne at the end of the film.

^ Joe: I've always wanted to see a movie version of 'Red Nails', I personally think it's the very best story, part horror, part sword and sorcery, part psychological drama. Gloomy, dangerous setting, weird monsters, deranged people trapped in a dying city, it would be brilliant. With either Ahnult or Momoa.

I was thinking the same thing.

Same here. I think it's great news that they're doing another Conan film with Arnie.

Now if we can just get the Tue Lies team back for a sequel...
