Who says the pen isn't mightier than the sword? Arnold Schwarzenegger has expressed interest in returning to his Nordic adventurer roots as Conan (WENN.COM)
Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed ongoing reports suggesting he's planning a big screen comeback as movie barbarian Conan.
Three decades after he first played the mythical character, the 65-year-old former California Governor is set to don the loincloth again for The Legend of Conan, according to Deadline.com.
Schwarzenegger says, "I always loved the Conan character and I’m honoured to be asked to step into the role once again.
"I can't wait to work with Universal and the great team of Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan to develop the next step of this truly epic story."
Malmberg adds, "The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior, and this is the take of the film we will make. It's that Nordic Viking mythic guy who has played the role of king, warrior, soldier and mercenary, and who has bedded more women than anyone, nearing the last cycle of his life. He knows he’ll be going to Valhalla, and wants to go out with a good battle."
