Schwarzenegger Is Conan Again In Legend Of Conan, Sequel To His First Film

Not only will the next Conan film disregard the recent Conan the Barbarian with Jason Momoa, and so should we all, it’s also going to disregard Conan the Destroyer, the second of Arnie’s pictures.

And, yeah, so should we all.

According to Deadline, the new Legend of Conan is to build on the end of John Milius and Oliver Stone‘s first instalment, growing out of that film’s final promise of another story for another time, telling us all about Conan the King. Do you remember the scene? Here’s an image.

Producer Chris Morgan says:

After the original seminal movie, all that came after looked silly to me. Robert E. Howard’s mythology and some great philosophy from Nietzsche to Atilla the Hun was layered in the original film. People say, he didn’t speak for the first 20 minutes of the film, but that was calculated in depicting this man who takes control of life with his own hand. This movie picks up Conan where Arnold is now in his life, and we will be able to use the fact that he has aged in this story. I love the property of Conan so much that I wouldn’t touch it unless we came up with something worthy. We think this is a worthy successor to the original film. Think of this as Conan’s Unforgiven.

Yeah, that isn’t as convincing as Morgan thinks it is.

But let’s wait and see who they get to write and direct this thing. Morgan seems upset that development has been taking too long, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go for some real corner cutters – he’s even threatening to write the script himself. The only screenplay of Morgan’s that I know I’ve seen on screen is The Fast and The Furious 5 so, frankly, I’d rather he didn’t.
