Back in October, we reported the exciting news that Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning as Conan The Barbarian in the Universal Pictures sequel The Legend of Conan, with Chris Morgan (The Fast and the Furious 6) attached to produce. Today, the writer-producer revealed that he convinced Arnold Schwarzenegger to come on board by presenting the project as a reunion with an old friend.
"(It's) not a reboot, not a remake. Just an update. Where has the character been all this time? A catch-up with Conan."
The story will take place during Conan's reign over his mystical kingdom, where he isn't fighting physical battles anymore.
"He's not going out and fighting battles, but he ends up getting drawn into something. And he has to access the barbarian he was in his youth. I love that Conan has been many things in his life, notably a pirate, a major tactician and a commander of men. »
