NETFLIX PLANNING CONAN TV SERIES

Not with Arnold Schwarzenegger of course (who else would you use for a picture?), but Netflix is planning a Conan the Barbarian TV series.

According to Variety, Netflix has won the rights to both a TV series and to make a movie.  The TV series has already started production.

It’s looking more likely at this stage that Arnold’s swansong movie, a final Conan sequel, is not going to happen.  Which is a pity, because no project could’ve kickstarted Schwarzenegger’s failing career like that one.  It could’ve been his own Rocky Balboa (the 2006 film that saved Sylvester Stallone).  Not to be a cynic, but Arnold’s crappy decisions lowered his stock for producers, I’d bet.  Whereas Stallone put a cold halt to appearing in all turds before Rocky Balboa.

Anyway, the big question is, who will fill the title role?
