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.
The Legend of Conan
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?
If you think of Arnold Schwarzenegger's long career as an action star, his career-launching title role in 'Conan The Barbarian' comes to mind (or at least it should come to mind). Fans of this hit movie now have something to celebrate as it's just been announced that the star will reprise his role for a 'Conan The Barbarian' reboot titled 'The Legend of Conan'!
