Though it’s been 30+ years since its last official (in continuity) film, The Legend of Conan is going to be made. In fact, the script for the film is being finished up right now.
The star of the film, the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger, has noted how the film is going to be a lot more than just a “B-action movie”.
“I can tell you is that it’s unbelievably well written. They’re still tweaking the end but it’s going to be very very powerful. What’s important on this project is they don’t look at it like, ‘Oh this is kind of a sword movie, where they just kill each other, and let’s write it off as a b-action movie.’ They treat it as like, ‘This is a very important movie for us, and we want to make a lot of money with this, it has to be the best quality.’ So the way they treat it is different than in the old days. Now, they see that it is one of those event movies that can come out in the summer and they treat it totally differently.”
That’s good to hear, as if it was just that kind of film, there would be no point in seeing it…like at all. We’ll just have to wait to see if The Legend of Conan crushes its enemies at the box office when it arrives in theaters.
