Back in October, we reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his legendary role as Conan the Barbarian in The Legend of Conan. The actor recently gave an update about the follow-up, revealing how Universal Pictures approached him for the project.
"[Universal] finally came forward, and said, 'You're absolutely right. The previous regime has missed the boat here. We want to pick it up. We're going to buy the rights and we're going to be serious about it and make a quality film with an A-director and with A-writers and so on. And we want you to participate in this. We want you to star and you to play Conan. We're going to take a story where Conan is at that age so it's totally believable and you're not looking like a 30-year old action guy."
This confirms an earlier report that indicated this version of Conan will be appropriate to Arnold Schwarzenegger's age.
