Rumors about another Conan movie have been circulating the net before Schwarzenegger even took office. Now that it looks like Schwarzenegger won't be doing a second term as the California governator we should have expected the rumors to kick into high gear again.
King Conan for Schwarzenegger
TheArnoldFans have recently posted a scoop that claims Jeff Robinov, president of the WB film division, is still thinking good thoughts about Crom and hoping King Conan can enter production in 2007 after Arnold leaves office.
I can't say much but Jeff Robinov is definitely hoping that Arnold looses the race for a 2nd term as governor so he can make his place back into feature films with KING CONAN.
If Arnold looses the next term, the WB wants the new Conan epic shooting on a grueling gorilla schedule around the clock starting March 2007 for a December 2007 release date. If Spielberg can do it for WAR OF THE WORLDS it can be done.
I have always had mixed feelings about Arnold returning to Conan. First, Arnold is most likely going to have to keep the furs and leather on this time around as his muscle-man body isn't what Conan's used to be. Sure, he may have been able to pull off the look in Terminator 3 but the recent 'beach pictures' of Schwarzenegger show that being a California governor can definitely create wear and tear on the body.
Will people accept a flabby Conan?
