But wait...

Flavorwire » Arnold Schwarzenegger Set to Become Conan the Barbarian Again

It could be awesome!

Arnold Schwarzenegger's been busy lining up film projects since his leave from politics, and the newest announcement is a bit of a surprise. The Governator will be reprising his role in the classic sword and sorcery adventure movie that made him a worldwide star, Conan the Barbarian. The Legend of Conan will have no link to the poorly received 2011 remake of John Milius' 1982 movie, which starred Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa as the Cimmerian warrior (who will not be returning to the franchise), or 1984′s Conan the Destroyer. The sequel was delightfully cheesy and starred an over-the-top Grace Jones (with a tail!) and Wilt Chamberlain.

Producer Fredrik Malmberg told Deadline more about the premise for the reboot, which finds Conan nearing the end of his life. "He knows he'll be going to Valhalla, and wants to go out with a good battle." Co-producer Chris Morgan may be scripting the movie for Universal. He's written the last several Fast and Furious films, as well as Wanted and 47 Ronin. The studio is aiming for a 2014 date, and they better hurry before Arnie gets too old and needs a hearing aid to hear the lamentations of his enemies' women.

Shit man, I JUST watched Conan the other night to remind me of what is best and life, and this will deliver.

I was just about to post that exact picture!

This has the potential to be amazing... but it could also be terrible.

I've been waiting since the day I sat in the theater as the first film ended with the shot of King Conan sitting on the throne for this film to come out. With Hollywood's track record lately, I really hope they do this story justice.

I wonder if they're going to draw inspiration from any of the Robert E. Howard stories from when Conan was king.

Alison Nastasi can get fucked. Conan the Destroyer rules.
the edited/ hacked that movie to death to get it rated pg. Cut out all of arnies sex scenes and a ton of gore. I keep hoping they will release an unedited version of it (Directors cut)

I agree with everyone - this better not suck :rant:

They did that with CTB too, I believe. Sucks, I know we all wanted a Grace Jones nude scene.
