King Conan: Crown Of Iron: A recent scoop posted over at The Arnold Fans may have the details on what director John Milius plans to do now that Arnold will not be making the next Conan film with him. Here's the juice:
"There are no hard feelings. Although Arnold needed to walk away from the project, Milius understands Arnold's decision...one hour after Arnold announced his decision to run on the Jay Leno Show, Arnold phoned Milius and said he was sorry that King Conan would not happen. Once again, Milius was invited over to the Schwarzenegger's for dinner. Despite the project collapsing, the two remain good friends. So now Milius needs to find a replacement. I asked about Ralf Moeller, TV's Conan. Apparently they like the guy for his size but instead think the wrestler "Triple H" MIGHT be a better and grittier fit. They also like his acting and believe he is the perfect age to show the transition from a younger Conan (flashbacks) and could also play the gray-bearded Conan. Milius and Triple H are getting along great already. The two are working on a new kick-ass action movie called "Journey of the Deadman". Milius is anxious to get the project going again and to continue the Conan mythology of kings, wizards and women of the finest stalk. He wants to film in Turkey and Ron Cobb and Basil Poledouris are anxious also to return".
