It's been all quiet on 'The Legend of Conan' front for a while now, and with the weak performance of 'The Last Stand' on top of the 2011 reboot (with Jason Momoa) we weren't sure if the third "official" Conan movie would move forward. But have no fear, a new writer has been hired to pen the tale of Arnold Schwarzenegger's King Conan.
Just when you thought that the Summer of 2015 couldn't be more overstuffed with blockbusters, they had to go and officially announce 'Terminator 5' with 'Thor: The Dark World' and 'Game of Thrones' director Alan Taylor at the helm.

An update of the 'Conan the Barbarian' franchise ('Conan' starring 'Game of Thrones' star Jason Momoa) did not go so well a few years ago, but bringing Arnold Schwarzenegger back to the fold could be exactly what the franchise needs. The teaming of actor and character has been rumored for a while now, but just how close is it to actually happening? And could we be seeing three new 'Conan' films?
Look at that headline. We know it sounds like a joke from The Onion, but we promise every word is true. 'Maggie' - starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and now Abigail Breslin - is a real movie that people are actually making. With money and such.
