What is best in life!? To see your enemies driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women? Possibly, but it could also be a whole new trilogy of Conan films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. We knew that when Paradox Entertainment picked up the rights to Conan the Barbarian we would be seeing, The Legend of Conan. Now, it seems that Fredrik Malmberg, CEO of Paradox Entertainment, may want more than just one film:
“We have a great story. This is a role that’s perfect for [Arnold] and he’s very involved with the whole Universal team. Arnold has been very instrumental to bringing this together saying, ‘We gotta make a good Conan!’ I think if we do this right, we can do two more Conan movies right after. I think Game Of Thrones also shows a huge interest in fantasy. I’m psyched about it.”
So, just what are the details of this return?
“The idea is that this takes place after Conan has been king. But this is the legend of Conan where he has been gone and people say, ‘Do you remember the good ol’ days when Conan was around?’ And now it’s time for him to come back.”
More Conan, means more awesome in my mind. Schwarzenegger will return and lead the series into his son, Conn. I really hope this trilogy comes to pass. I pray to Crom that it will happen.
