Arnold Schwarzenegger ‘excited’ about new Conan movie


Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in Conan the Barbarian in 1982 and then in 1984 he made Conan the Destroyer. Now, he is all set for the third installment of the series, The Legend of Conan, and couldn’t be happier about it.

The actor has revealed he wanted to reprise his role as Conan earlier, but couldn’t find common ground with the people who owned the rights to the movie.

Speaking at the press conference for his new movie, Sabotage, Arnold said: ”They said ‘Do you want to play Conan? I thought ‘Oh it will be great to be back’ because it’s all of the original characters.

”I’ve tried to do more Conan movies  in the past, but the people who have owned the rights I didn’t want to do Conan movies with, if they weren’t on the level of big movies, you know it needed the budget behind it, the director behind it, then it can be a proper movie.”

    Conan certainly has more potential than another Terminator film….for another Terminator film to excite me, it would have to be written and directed by James Cameron.

    Well so far, the audience has certainly NOT been there for him during his return to filmmaking. I’m interested in a King Conan film, though I think it would have been far better 20 years ago. I adore The Terminator, but if the rumors are true that they’re going to revisit previous set pieces a la Harry Potter 3, with a geriatric Terminator, I’m not really interested in that.
