With the release of Terminator Genisys this week, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been doing several interviews; at a press junket he was asked by Nerd Report about the upcoming Legend of Conan.
He said: “I was hoping to do another one, and I [liked] the idea of Conan having been king for a long time, then just threw it all away and went into retirement and went off into the mountains. That whole idea always appealed to me. Then of course he gets asked back because of some hideous and unbelievable things that are happening to the kingdom. So that’s when the battle begins again.”
Schwarzenegger has seen Chris Morgan’s script for The Legend of Conan and, while he has a few notes, he’s happy with it. “That turned out really great,” Schwarzenegger said. “It needs some tweakage but really they’ve done an extraordinary job with it, very thoughtful so I’m looking forward to working with them on that as soon as this gets out of the way, because I’m very focused on one thing at a time. Then we do the next thing.”
I have to admit that I’m more interested in a new Conan movie than Genisys and it will be interesting to see what the box office is like; if Terminator isn’t a hit then we may not get to see a new Conan.
My tickets are booked for Wednesday afternoon so stay tuned for my review…
