Arnold Schwarzenegger's Legend of Conan will be a sequel to the 1982 film

The Legend of Conan Arnold Schwarzenegger Banner

If you've been waiting for an update on Arnold Schwarzenegger's THE LEGEND OF CONAN, I have some good news for you. Producer Fredrik Malmberg recently told The Arnold Fans that the script is done, and production could start as early as this fall, once Schwarzenegger is done promoting TERMINATOR: GENISYS. Malmberg also told the site that "Our marching orders from the studio were to create a film worthy as a successor to the 1982 film, which was pretty brutal." Co-writer/producer Chris Morgan had this to say when asked if we'll be getting a light-hearted Conan flick.

A light-hearted Conan?! CROM! No. Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the ’82 film…but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a thief, a warrior, a pirate, a king, a legend — and is now an older man. Think Unforgiven…with a sword-wielding barbarian.

THE LEGEND OF CONAN won't be a reboot, but a sequel to the original 1982 movie, and co-writer/producer Chris Morgan also told The Arnold Fans at least three other characters will be back for the film, although he didn't reveal which ones. The project still doesn't have a director yet, so who do you want behind the camera for the CONAN THE BARBARIAN sequel?

Arnold Schwarzenegger's TERMINATOR: GENISYS will hit theaters on July 1, 2015.

1 or 2 more flops and Arnie is done :-(

Verhoeven is the only man I would trust with a Conan film. I hear Milius has had a stroke.

He really should have done the Conan movie first. I'll still go see T: Genisys to support Arnie, but it's hard to expect much after the last 2 movies.

I can't wait for this. They need to get this rolling soon because I fear Arnold's star power waning fast especially if Terminator bombs. As for Directors, I like DaForce's suggestion of McTiernan. He directed Arnold in my favorite movie of his; Predator, to a surprisingly uncorny and straight forward badass performance that was decent.

It has to be a director that isn't afraid to be called misogynist and/or sexist.

I see no reason to either directly address or overwrite Conan The Destroyer though.

Hey it's been 30 years so in Conan time that's like 700ad things are a changing and Conan realizes he needs some diversity in his harem. So now he has men as well as women to bugger at night. Progress!

Verhoevan would be my pick. Though it wouldn't surprise me if they give the job to Alan Taylor, since he directed several Game of Thrones episodes, and has already worked with Arnold on the new Terminator. Neil Marshall would be a good choice too.

Interesting take on the Conan mythos. He's a cyber-marketer ruling his kingdom of data-enterers. What is best in life? Crush your competitors. See their profit margins drop before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.

Damn, you beat me with McTiernan. Just wanted to mention him. Verhoeven or Miller would be cool as well.

McTiernan straight up. Awesome choice. He also directed Arnold in his best role ever as Dutch in Predator. And I love 13th Warrior.

There is ONLY one man who should direct a sequel to Conan...

...John Milius, the man who directed the original1982 film and who was set to direct King Conan: Crown of Iron in 2003 before Arnold dropped out at the 11th hour to run for Governor of California. If this is to be a true sequel to Conan the Barbarian, a film that was wholly shaped from script to screen by Milius' unique vision and sensibilities, then he is the clear choice to sit in the director's chair.

Pay Verhoeven whatever he wants so he'll direct it.

If we're talking dream directors

then either Matthew Vaughn or George Miller. Bring on the blood squibs!

Fuck. Yes.

Bring this on.
And I'd love to see George Miller behind the camera. John Milius would be the dream though...

But why not a sequel to Conan the Destroyer? At least we'd have a trilogy then.
