Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Conan franchise doesn’t look to be going anywhere just yet, and TV could always use more female leads, so is Red Sonja about to raise her sword? A new report suggests none other than X-Men maestro Bryan Singer himself is working on an “R-rated” TV take on the famed character, likely engineered for cable.
The Legend of Conan
In news that will make some of you very happy (looking at you, Matt Singer), Arnold Schwarzenegger says that he’s actively meeting with directors for his long-developing Conan the Barbarian sequel. Previously known as The Legend of Conan, the screenplay for the project is now complete and it may have a shiny new title.
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.
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?
You guys remember that awesome Lady Bane cosplay from last year? Well one of our favorite cosplayers is back with her fierce take on Red Sonja.
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'!
