Might The Rock star alongside Schwarzenegger in the next Conan movie?

Just the other day, we tickled your barbarian bone with an article about the new CONAN movie, with Arnold Schwarzenegger teasing an "A" movie (as opposed to a B movie) filled with spectacle and grand entertainment. Today he's getting us further lathered up with a casting idea that'll act as catnip for action fanatics.

An interview with Arnie over at IAmRogue covers plenty of topics, but the reporter brings up one Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, with whom Schwarzenegger shared the screen very briefly in Peter Berg's THE RUNDOWN. Can Arnold envision starring opposite The Rock again in the near future?

"I think it would be great for him, for The Rock to play the earlier generation and me the later generation. I'm looking forward to that."

It's unclear if Arnold is referencing the next CONAN, or just speaking about a general collaboration, and while this is most likely just an offhand remark that shouldn't be given too much deep thinking, we can't help but be intrigued by the possibilities of these two slashing up Robert E. Howard's universe together. After all, The Rock is the Scorpion King, and knows his way around a scimitar.

Momoa or Rock

i love both actors but my issue is the fact that none of them actually LOOK like Arnold! I mean how do you get to ethnic actors to play younger versions of a guy who is clearly white. I guess it's a moot point until we know if Arnold was all talk or if he's secret.

Momoa? Yeah if he put on another 20 pounds of muscle

Sure the guy is big in "regular joe" terms, but not good enought o be the barbarian we all know and love, some pretend to know anyway. Momoa acted rather well, for the most part but he is not strong enough. Arnold would use him like a dishrag.

I say bring the Rock in, let him be Conn and go for it.

Momoa is Conan. Rock had his Scorpion King deal.

ET: Jason Momoa deserves richly to have another Conan movie. He captured the character, and a fan enjoyed watching the most recent Conan film. However, Hollywood might not give him another chance. Hopefully, he gets a role in the new Kng Conan movie. Schwarzenegger is Conan the same way that Connery is Bond; no one is going to usurp him.
