Arnold beefing up again to play Conan
"The Legend of Conan" is coming from Universal, with Arnold Schwarzenegger back in the loincloth, for summer of 2014.
The new story is shaped around the plot of an aging Conan wanting "to go out with a good battle." Deadline Hollywood has an article describing the talent maneuvers that are occurring to get the film made, which is meant to continue from the ending of the original first Conan film (with Schwarzenegger) and will not include Arnold's sequel (Conan the Destroyer) or the Momoa 'reboot' from 2011 as part of the story line.
