In a recent Q&A with fans in Edinburgh, Scotland, over the weekend, Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that a new Conan movie is indeed in the works, and that it is titled “Conan the Conqueror.”
While the news itself, and the title, isn’t necessarily brand new information, the actor did reveal some new details on the film that hadn’t been discussed before.
“I’m sitting on the throne for years and years — decades, and then all of a sudden, the time comes when they want to overthrow me, so that story will be told and that movie will be done.”
Along with the new details, the actor revealed that the film is already completely written and is currently in search of a director to take on the project.
When asked about if he could actually take on such a physical role at 68, the actor replied:
“When you stay in shape, you do turn back the clock, so I feel great and the last few movies that I’ve done, I’ve done many of my own stunts. I did all the physical stuff and it didn’t wipe me out and I have plenty of energy and feel really terrific. So I am absolutely convinced that I can do the Conan movie and do the horseback riding, the sword fights, and all the fighting.”
With the recent failure and likely closure of The Terminator Franchise, it would make sense that the actor is shopping around to resurrect another one of his iconic roles, hopefully this one comes out far better than his last attempt.
