Schwarzenegger To Star In New “Conan” Trilogy?

July 29, 2013

Paradox Entertainment holds the rights to the Conan The Barbarian franchise and CEO Fredrik Malmberg recently revealed the status of THE LEGEND OF CONAN. It sounds like a trilogy may be in the works.

“We have a great story. This is a role that’s perfect for [Arnold] and he’s very involved with the whole Universal team. Arnold has been very instrumental to bringing 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.”

The Legend of Conan is written by screenwriter Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious 7). According to Morgan, the pictures takes place years later and we will see the older hero not necessarily fighting in battles, but leading an army. Probably because Schwarzenegger just turned 65 years old.

The comment below by Malmberg seems to back this up.

“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.”
