Aside from TERMINATOR, Arnold Schwarzenegger has long been attached to a KING CONAN feature a third installment of the franchise now in the hands of the Wachowski brothers (of MATRIX fame). Apparently, there has recently been movement on this project as well.

"I just had a cigar with [CONAN screenwriter] John Milius the other day," said Schwarzenegger. "He's re-writing [KING CONAN] as we speak because he had written it; it was 168-page script and then the Wachowski brothers told him that the script would take too much time. It would be a three and a half hour movie and he should cut it down to 120-pages and take certain things out. So that's what he's doing right now. But as you know with John things take time. He's not the quickest guy in town. He smokes a stogie and then he writes a page and then he smokes another stogie."
