Schwarzenegger news: First Ten photo & Universal sets up The Legend of Conan!

Two Van Damme stories, now two on Arnold? Looking like action Thursday 'round here!

I'll take it. First up is an official set photo from TEN, David Ayer's action-thriller about a throng of Drug Enforcement Agents getting picked off one by one. Arnie's got the slick coif, the tats, the mean mug...dude means business!

Synopsis: A testosterone-heavy riff on Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians," the film follows an elite DEA task force that robs a dangerous drug cartel under the guise of a tactical raid on one of its safe houses. They think they've gotten away with millions in merch, until team members begin getting bumped off one by one.

But the bigger news of the day goes to Universal, who is intent on putting Schwarzenegger back into the CONAN cloth. Deadline claims the studio has setup THE LEGEND OF CONAN, which will continue the story of the mythic barbarian Arnold made famous in the 80s. Who's pumped?

No plot details were given for LEGEND OF CONAN, but we know Fredrik Malmberg (Paradox Ent) and Chris Morgan (Universal) will produce. Morgan hatched the story for the film and may pen the script, having experience with WANTED and 47 RONIN. Thing is, Universal wants the flick delivered by summer of 2014, which immediately puts a ticking clock scenario on the production. Could prove detrimental.

Untold in all this is the fact Arnold is 65 this year. Short of CGI muscles, I can't really see a sexagenarian can credibly playing an ass kicking warrior. I mean, even Liam Neeson keeps his shirt on in the TAKEN films. Know what I'm saying?!

What are your thoughts? You down for another Arnie CONAN flick, or is this just another sad attempt to recapture past glory?

Extra Tidbit: You more keen to see TEN or THE LEGEND OF CONAN?

To stay on topic, now that he's done pushing pencils, I have no doubt that Arnold will be in tip-top shape for Conan. Just look at Sly!

WTF is wrong with you?

He's clearly smashed out so many films this year so he can take the next year off and hit the gym, while still keeping a constant release schedule. You cant compare Arnie, 8 time Mr. Olympia, to Liam Neeson. Neeson was NEVER in shape. Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with you? Do you even know who Arnold Schwarzenegger is?! Where's Arrow when you need him? Arnold will hit the weights again, hit the supplements, and amaze all. It's in his nature, simply because it's a challenge is why he will

SYLVESTER STALLONE IS OLDER THAN ARNOLD! And you choose to compare Arnie to fucking LIAM NEESON? Are you kidding me?

Check out Arnold era bodybuilder Frank Zane. 70 years old.
