One of Arnold’s big up and coming movies is going to be sequel The Legend Of Conan. We haven’t heard anything from that in a while but writer Chris Morgan has given some updates to craveonline.com in a new interview. Aside from the usual blow-harding about being ‘first in line’ and ‘biggest fan of the series’, Morgan did inspire confidence by shitting on CGI and talking about a grittier movie, closer to the original.
The model for us really is Unforgiven. It is and I think it’s an important thing because something about that to me says grounded, real. This isn’t going to be your run of the mill CG fest, throw millions of armies and that’s just what it is. It’s not. It is a character story and it’s a good one. It’s a really good one.
Sounds good. I’ve always thought that the one series that deserved a sequel with Arnie in it (behind Predator) would be Conan. He should really have pushed for it before anything else, including The Expendables or The Last Stand. Anyway, as long as it get’s made, I’ll be happy. Crush our PG enemies!
