Schwarzenegger returns as Conan

The third installment?

I almost thought it was joke but there the story was as clear as day. The former Governor of California and action star will return to the role of Conan the Barbarian. After 30 years Arnold Schwarzenegger will return as Robert E. Howard’s character in "The Legend of Conan."

Arnold had this to say: "I always loved the Conan character and I'm honored to be asked to step into the role once again," Arnold tells Deadline. "I can't wait to work with Universal and the great team of Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan to develop the next step of this truly epic story."

Fredrik Malmberg had this to say about the next Conan film: “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."

Personally, I always loved that final moment of Conan where the lonely old warrior sat on his throne. It always looked as if he got everything he was promised and learned it wasn’t enough. 

What do you think Maniacs? Has Arnold got one more in him? Or is he too old for this shit?


Thanks to Moz72 for the submission.

 Really?  Wayyyyyy too old for this.

 I hope they use CG to cover up his wrinkles

 That's the whole point of it. He is an OLD Conan warrior-king. I for one think this is a great idea and am super stoked for it!

In this next movie he fights John McCain.

Heavy lies the head that wears the crown. I say if Stallone can give Rocky his Swan Song, than it's only fitting that Arnold do the same with Conan. Just wonder if the Governator can get back into shape and firm up the parts that are starting to sag, especially if he wants to get back into character. Agrre with Violater, I'm stoked for this!

Arnold is the right age to play an older Conan. We've all got to see the warrior/barbarian Conan- It'd be interesting to see how the older King Conan handles being King and the challenges to his rule knowing he's getting older and can no longer simply over-power his opponents. What kind of King is Conan? Do the men that serve his crown fear him, or respect him?

Could be very interesting.
