We already knew that Arnold Schwarzenegger was back as Conan, but now it appears as if it’s not just one Conan the Barbarian. Oh no, rumors are swirling about today that it will actually be a Conan trilogy.
“But Arnold Schwarzenegger is so old” you might say, and you would be right. At 65, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a little on the old side.
That is why the filmmakers currently plan for the new Conan movie to pick up after the end of the first one. So ignore that you ever saw Conan the Destroyer or 2011’s Conan the Barbarian with Jason Momoa.
Fredrik Malmberg, CEO of Paradox Entertainment, which holds the rights to the franchise, says that the new trilogy would start the story several years after the original Conan the Barbarian.
“The idea is that this takes place after Conan has been king, but this is the legend of Conan where he has been gone and people say, ‘Do you remember the good ol’ days when Conan was around?’ and now it’s time for him to come back.”
So basically Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Conan is just like the New Kids on the Block. Good to know.
Let’s hear it THG’ers. Should Arnold Schwarzenegger bring Conan the Barbarian back as a trilogy?
