Here’s the list of upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger films scheduled to release in 2018 and 2019. We can only hope that the latest new Arnold Schwarzenegger movie would be as good as some of his recent ones.
6. The Legend of Conan (Announced)
Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to embody the titular character of Conan after 30 years. The movie was assumed to be shelved but Arnold confirmed in an interview that the movie is still in the works with James Cameron being the producer of the movie. Will Beal, Andrea Berloff and Chris Morgan will be writing the screenplay.
This is what Screenwriter Chris Morgan had to say in an interview: “Conan will always have life in it, not for us, unfortunately. We put together a great, great story –I’m the biggest fan of the [John] Milius Conan film, a lot of people make fun of it but I think it’s the smartest script, I think it’s a great performance, I love the story. It actually has something to say about what it is to be a man and a warrior, what’s worth fighting for and what’s not, I’ve always loved it. To me, there’s only been one Conan movie and it’s that one, there’s never been anything else. So our idea was to literally pick that movie up but 30 years later and kind of do a version of Unforgiven, where there’s something going on and Conan is not the strongest guy he used to be, he’s not the legend he used to be; he’s an old, broken guy. And this thing comes down to where now he’s got to find a reason to go on and find a different way to fight other than just with brute strength. It was a great movie that just gave validation to even at the end of someone’s life there’s real value to them. I don’t know, it was so great, Arnold [Schwarzenegger] loved it. I think at the end of the day it was just probably too expensive, too big, and to the studio ultimately it wasn’t in the cards for them. So now it’s kind of out and I think they’re looking elsewhere to do like maybe a TV show or something else with it. But that was my interest, just to tell that one story, but you never know, down the road, we’ll see what happens.”
