Arnold Schwarzenegger is being lined up to star in a ‘Legend of Conan’

SchwarzneggerArnold Schwarzenegger looks set to star in a ‘Legend of Conan’ trilogy if the first movie is a success.

 

The 65-year-old actor is to reprise his role as the titular warrior in one forthcoming film, but a further two movies look to be on the cards if the sequel to 1982’s ‘Conan the Barbarian’ is a success, according to Fredrik Malmberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Paradox Entertainment.

 

He said: “We have a great story. Everyone loves it. This is a role that’s perfect for him and he’s very involved with the whole Universal team. It’s the best team they have. Arnold has been very instrumental to being this together saying, ‘We gotta make a good Conan!’

 

“I think if we do this right, we can do two more Conan movies right after. I think ‘Game of Thrones’ also shows a huge interest in fantasy. I’m psyched about it.”

 

Arnold has teamed up with Universal for the forthcoming film, which will see the iconic character go into battle once again after growing bored of being king.

 

Speaking to TheArnoldFans.com, Fredrik added: “The idea is that this takes place after Conan has been king. But this is the legend of Conan where he has been gone and people say, ‘Do you remember the good ol’ days when Conan was around?’ And now it’s time for him to come back.

 

“In the stories and you can also see it when he’s sitting on the thrown and the narration on that last scene of the movie…’with a troubled brow’ …you can tell he’s not really happy being king. So, it’s time for him to go out and do battle.”
