The Legend of Conan screenwriter explains why his Unforgiven-style take isn’t happening

After his stint as Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that he planned to revisit a number of his former glories in Terminator, Twins and Conan.

In the years following, the action icon has found himself onto his second stab at Terminator with production underway on the as-yet-untitled Terminator 6 (rebooting the series after 2015’s failed reboot Terminator Genisys), but it seems there’s been very little movement on both Triplets and The Legend of Conan.

Well, speaking to Collider this week, producer and screenwriter Chris Morgan has been discussing the latter, revealing that his “Unforgiven-style” take on the barbarian is no longer moving ahead, as well as teasing what he had in store for the movie.

“Conan will always have life in it, not for us unfortunately,” said Morgan. “We put together a great, great story –I’m the biggest fan of the [John] Milius Conan film, a lot of people

Despite the combined talents of the team however, completing the kills turns out to be a harder than they had expected, as their plans turn into a series of bungled encounters with Gunther always seeming to be one step ahead.

‘Ocean’s 8': Which Movies Should Get the Female Reboot Treatment Next? (Photos)
Between “Ocean’s 8,” “Overboard,” a remake of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” called “The Hustle” and a follow-up to “What Women Want” called “What Men Want,” the surge of gender-swapped reboots in recent years is real. It’s a smart way of dusting off proven properties with a fresh point of view. And thankfully, there’s been an equal push to not just remake old movies with women but provide the right amount of diversity on screen in original properties as well. There’s still a long way to go though, and we polled the women of TheWrap to see what favorite films they’d like to see get gender-swapped next.

The Sting

If “Ocean’s 8” does well, “The Sting” would be the next ideal crime caper to remake. The Best Picture winning period drama has class and creativity that could be ideal for two female grifters. The key is just finding

Save the date for Danny DeVito Day

He’s starred in films such as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Jewel of the Nile, Twins and Batman Returns, the hit TV series Taxi, not to mention a Phil Collins video, so it’s safe to say that Danny DeVito is deserving of the latest honour bestowed upon him. His home state of New Jersey has just proclaimed November 17 ‘Danny DeVito Day’, in recognition of his services to the big screen.

The date also happens to be his birthday, and was announced by John Moor, Mayor of Asbury Park where the actor-director grew up. It was all part of the town’s Music and Film Festival last Saturday – what could be more fitting?

Although he went all Westside a long, long time ago in a (successful) bid to kickstart his career, DeVito has never forgotten his East Coast roots and has returned ‘home’ frequently, putting back into

What ‘Call Me by Your Name’ Would Look Like With Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito (Video)
What would “Call Me by Your Name” have looked like had Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito starred in the roles of Oliver and Elio? Funny or Die made a mashup — titled “Call Me by Your Twins” — of the 1988 comedy film “Twins” starring DeVito and Schwarzenegger with the Oscar-nominated film “Call Me by Your Name.” And it’s amazing. Michael Stuhlbarg’s beautiful monologue and conversation with Elio (played by Timothee Chalamet in the actual film) made it into the mashup, as did the famous peach and the dancing scene that went viral last year.

Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger are in love in this hilarious mashup, which uses footage from Twins and Call Me By Your Name as well as a pretty funny twist from the movie Junior and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Watch as Schwarzenegger tears off his shirt to an over excited DeVito.

Armie Hammer and Timoth&#233e Chalamet have been replaced and an official sequel to Call Me By Your Name might actually be better with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. The chemistry is undeniable.

Sufjan Stevens' "Mystery of Love" plays underneath the hilarious mashup, which even sees a return to the peach eating scene.

Sara Gilbert on Life After ‘Roseanne,’ Guiding the Reboot and the Upcoming ‘Living Biblically’

It was all about the couch.

Yes, Archie Bunker had his easy chair, and the “Friends” had their sofas in Central Perk. But the couch in the Conner family’s living room may well be one of TV’s most iconic pieces of furniture.

So when the idea of a revival of the late-’80/mid-’90s ABC sitcom “Roseanne” began to take shape, Sara Gilbert — the architect of the reboot and one of the series’ stars — insisted that the couch be the same, if a bit more weathered.

“I really wanted the house to feel a lot like it did before,” she says. “I felt like there would be little changes in artwork and things like that, but this is a working-class family. I think sometimes people in Hollywood do working class through the lens of people who are privileged.”

The sitcom, which aired for nine seasons, broke ground for its no-holds-barred portrayal of a blue-collar family

No Retreat, No Surrender and Kill ‘Em All! – Why You Should Give a Damme About Jean-Claude

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Matt Rodgers

Jcvd returns this week in Peter Malota‘s Kill ‘Em All, a fiery shoot ’em up which sees the man himself return to form as a one-man killing machine caught up in the crossfire between an international criminal gang and an increasingly desperate FBI investigation. It is a ridiculously fun throwback to the Van Damme days of glory with well suited henchmen being reworked internally by the the muscles from Brussels. A wonderfully-bearded Peter Stomare and another key 80s action star Maria Conchita Alonso (who partnered The Running Man and took the alien to task in Predator 2) join in the fun. Take a look at the trailer, and you’ll know exactly what we mean…

“Eliza’s story has now awakened us from our denial slumber to a new, horrific reality. The abuse of children,” she added.

Twins 2 Script Is Almost Finished

Nearly thirty years later, Arnold Schwarzenegger is still trying to get a sequel to Twins going. He's talked about the follow-up to his hit 80s comedy for a long time now, but it sounds like Twins 2, officially titled Triplets, is actually getting off the ground this time. Schwarzenegger recently revealed that the script for Triplets is almost done and, if all goes well, they will actually film the movie early next year.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently promoting his new movie Killing Gunther, which puts his comedy chops to use. While making the press rounds, Schwarzenegger was asked about the status of Triplets and he revealed that the script will be done any day now, and original director Ivan Reitman is very happy with where it's at.

It looks like the James Cameron-produced Terminator reboot may not be the only one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s past glories he’ll be revisiting next year, as the action icon has confirmed to Business Insider that he expects the long-rumoured Twins sequel Triplets to shoot in 2018.

“I had a conversation yesterday with my agent and he said that the script will be finished in 14 days,” said Schwarzenegger during a promotional interview for his new film Killing Gunther. “Ivan Reitman is extremely happy with what he’s seen so far, he just wants to make a few tweaks, so that’s music to my ears. I think sometime beginning of next year we can shoot the film. Everyone is happy to do this movie.”

The Twins sequel was first announced back in 2012, with Schwarzenegger’s Julius and Danny DeVito’s Vincent set to be joined by a third brother, played by Eddie Murphy.
