The Legend of Conan is believed to be shooting this fall, but his revenge drama 478 may come first. That film is about a man who goes after the air traffic controller responsible for his family's death. He is also working on the Twins sequel Triplets, which has been delayed. But the legendary actor confirms that it is still moving forward with original co-star Danny DeVito and newcomer Eddie Murphy.

‘Legend of Conan’ Will Stay Faithful to 1982 ‘Conan the Barbarian’

‘Legend of Conan’ Will Stay Faithful to 1982 ‘Conan the Barbarian’

Terminator Genisys isn't the only movie that will see Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising one of his most iconic characters of all time. He also has The Legend of Conan on the horizon, with a 2016 release planned. And while we've seen Conan on the screen twice since Arnold Schwarzenegger made his debut as the iconic character in John Milius's 1982 Conan The Barbarian, this next installment promises to be a true sequel, not a reboot or remake.

Speaking with TheArnoldFans.com, producer/co-writer Chris Morgan and Fredrik Malmberg reveal that The Legend of Conan will retain the spirit and tone of the original Conan The Barbarian while also staying true to creator Robert E. Howard's vision. The film is will not be rated PG-13, but is very brutal. Says Chris Morgan:"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. Milius was a visionary. And a hero of mine. He established a milieu that is stunning and violent and clear - incomparable. The goal, the dream, is to live up to his world. To make it worthy. And to expand on it in a truthful way that audiences will embrace. We're very lucky that the architects of this new film - the writer, the producers, the studio and most of all, Arnold - who is Conan - are all first-generation fans who either worked on the film or who came along for the ride, cheering from their theater seats opening night. We plan nothing more than to immerse ourselves in the world Milius envisioned from Robert E. Howard's unforgettable stories and Frank Frazetta's stunning artwork. I can't give specifics (nobody likes a spoiler!), but know we are honoring the locales, the religions and the traditions of the '82 film.
