Arnold Schwarzenegger looks set to star in a 'Legend of Conan' trilogy if the first movie is a success.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is being lined up to star in a 'Legend of Conan' trilogy.
The 65-year-old actor is to reprise his role as the titular warrior in one forthcoming film, but a further two movies look to be on the cards if the sequel to 1982's 'Conan the Barbarian' is a success, according to Fredrik Malmberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Paradox Entertainment.
He said: ''We have a great story. Everyone loves it. This is a role that's perfect for him and he's very involved with the whole Universal team. It's the best team they have. Arnold has been very instrumental to being this together saying, 'We gotta make a good Conan!'

Arnold Schwarzenegger is ''honoured'' to be starring in 'The Legend of Conan', a sequel to the original action film franchise.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his iconic warrior role in 'The Legend of Conan'.
The former Governor of California is teaming up with Universal Pictures to bring the action franchise up-to-date in a sequel to the beloved fantasy films, picking up ''where Arnold is now in his life.''
The 65-year-old muscleman said: ''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.''

The movie star-turned-politician was mired in controversy earlier this year (11) when he split from his wife Maria Shriver amid claims he'd enjoyed a long affair with their housekeeper, Mildred Baena.
It later emerged the Hollywood hardman had also fathered a son, Joseph, during the affair - and the 14 year old made a playful reference to his dad on Monday by attending a Halloween party in California dressed as Schwarzenegger's musclebound character from the 1982 film.
Photographs from the event in Valencia show Joseph wearing a fur-lined leather tunic and a headband - and wielding an enormous sword.

The Hollywood hunk is no fan of the technological luxuries, admitting he and his partner Lisa Bonet won't allow a TV in their house, which means he can never watch his performances on dramas like Game of Thrones and re-runs of Stargate: Atlantis and Baywatch.
He tells Total Film magazine, "People normally have a cell phone, they have email, they have computers, they have a TV. And I don't have any of them. In these times that's considered barbaric to a civilised world."
The actor admits he gets his entertainment from the big screen instead: "I get my popcorn and my hot tamales (a Spanish savoury wrap) and I love (it) when the lights go down and I watch the previews. To me, that's my tradition, that's my childhood. That's when I escaped and went into different worlds."

The actor plays savage warrior Conan in the upcoming revamp and was racing on horseback when he was thrown from his mount and the animal then fell to the ground close to his body.
Momoa was so shaken by the near-miss he had to retreat to his trailer for a tearful phone call to his loved ones.
He tells Britain's Sunday Mail, "When we were running at 25 miles an hour, the horse lost its footing and flipped over. As he lost his front feet, I slid off his neck and he went backside over.

The actor thought his savage character should look a little "roughed up" and asked friends if they thought he should have a broken nose.
One pal took him at his word and popped him in the face - so Momoa could see what he'd look like.
He explains, "I was like, 'It was an idea...' My wife was p**sed.

The actor admits he loves to unwind with a six-pack but he had to switch to whiskey while he was getting into shape for the new blockbuster.
He says, "I'm a big fan of alcohol... I'm a big beer fan; I drink Guinness. But, during Conan, it was scotch, because beer makes you bigger... and a couple of beers to help get the dirt and blood off."
And his Conan diet left a lot to be desired: "I had to eat boiled chicken breast every two hours. It's like wet cardboard."

The Wrestler actor had signed up to play Conan's father in the new movie alongside former Baywatch star Jason Momoa, who will tackle the role made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1982 original.

The former Baywatch star has been battling it out with the two hunks to take over the role that made Arnold Schwarzenegger famous in 1982.

Lutz admits he can't wait to take over from Arnold Schwarzenegger - because the role will give him the chance to really bulk up.
The hunky movie vampire explains, "It's something that I've been actively going after because I'd die to put the weight back on... I want to be the big guy that I was."
Lutz tells Eonline.com he's been auditioning for the part and now must wait to see if he'll be chosen as the new Conan.
