Arnold Schwar-zenegger Wants One Last Conan Movie Inspired By Unforgiven
While “The Legend of Conan” has been up in the air for years, Arnold Schwarzenegger shared his desire to play the barbarian warrior again and had some ideas for the film.
The sequel could use Schwarzenegger’s advanced age as part of the plot, with the actor saying, “I think you do it like ‘Unforgiven,’ where you play the age.”
The movie could see Schwarzenegger’s Conan going out on his own terms or passing the torch to a new generation, thus leaving the option to explore the franchise further.
Unfortunately, the film’s been stuck in development limbo, with the actor sharing, “It’s been pending for the last 10 years. [Fredrik] Malmberg owns the rights.”
Malmberg, who served as the executive producer of 2011’s “Conan” reboot, is the president of Heroic Signatures and is in charge of the entire “Conan” franchise.
Schwarzenegger added, “There are directors who want to do it. But [...] until he sells the rights for one or two movies, or for the franchise, there’s nothing you can do about it.”
