Cannes is in full swing right now. That means projects that need a little nudge getting off the ground with extra funding are there seeking investors for the next big thing (it’s like Kickstarter, but you get to meet the people you’re pleading with for money).
And one of those films looking for help is King Conan, Arnie’s planned return to the franchise that made his greased-up biceps a thing.
King Conan has been a project that many fans of the 1982 film have been hoping would come to fruition before star Arnold Schwarzenegger was too old to pick up a sword.
The 66-year-old actor has been in a string of not-so-great post-Governator roles, but it looks like his return to the Terminator franchise is a sign that he’s happy to be back where he’s loved. According to JoBlo, Universal Pictures would love to get Conan to go full warrior king following Terminator: Genesis, in King Conan with a script by World Trade Center writer Andrea Berloff.
My hope: that Schwarzenegger’s classic character nostalgia cavalcade gets us sequels to Commando and Predator.
The poster is being very optimistic in hoping that we’ll see King Conan in theaters by 2015.
What do you think? Are you excited for the voyages and adventures of old Conan?
