Here's part of the article:
'Arnold Schwarzenegger is lined up to reprise his original star-making role as Conan in Legend of Conan, but a director has yet to be attached to the slowly, but steadily, developing project. The film’s screenplay is also a work in progress for the time being, with Fast & Furious franchise writer/producer Chris Morgan now working on a script draft in tandem with Will Beall: the Gangster Squad screenwriter who is also putting together a fresh Aquaman movie script draft for Momoa and director James Wan, as it were.
Milius’ Conan the Barbarian famously concludes with a shot of an older (and bearded) Conan the Barbarian, now a king and sitting upon his own throne – teasing that one day, the story of the King Conan will be told. Beall, when he spoke to /Film at the CBS, CW and Showtime party for the 2016 Television Critics Association press tour, confirmed that Legend of Conan picks up right with the final shot of Milius’ film:
“It opens there. It opens with this [hand on the chin]. It’s where you have to. It’s the sequel that we were promised and never got.”'
This is the shot that they are talking about.
Just for fun, here is a fan made poster of the same image.
You're right, I counted incorrectly :P
Didn't he lose his head in the original?
Blood sucking Africans.
I get what you were saying but why? Are they in one of the books or comics that I missed or is your comment just random?
The rest of the films are pretty worthless.
Would be nice to see John Milius involved in some way.
The script was used for Kull the Conqueror instead, anyone saw that? Conan and King Kull are practically identical anyway.
I've seen production stills, character designs and voice actors were cast but it seems to have been in limbo for years.
With the new Arnie film, I'd love to see 'Hour of the Dragon' adapted.
...with Jesse the Body Ventura!
Damn, it just goes to show you how these older actors appeal never fades. Unfortunately, I find many of these younger actors to be quite generic with a handful of exceptions. Not that Arnold can act very well but he has charisma and is more memorable.
Looks like it's still on the way, slowly but surely. I really wish they would just drop the Terminator franchise for awhile and just do another Conan already!
John Milius had a serious stroke several years ago. There was a great documentary made about him recently.
Love Conan The Barbarian. Watch it frequently. The sequel and remake were dire.
Wouldnt bother watching another follow up since its unlikely Milius would be involved. It was he who made the original great!
and no less for his stroke and somewhat recovery shown.
I've asked you to refer to me by my real name, Blackula.
I watched that a few years ago excellent documentary, the group Milius learnt his craft with will never be beaten.
