Conan the Conqueror is coming folks! That's right and no its not going to star Jason Momoa. In a recent Q & A with fans in Edinburgh, Scotland, Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that a new Conan movie is indeed happening. The legendary action star than went on to discuss some details about the film.

“I’m sitting on the throne for years and years — decades, and then all of a sudden, the time comes when they want to overthrow me, so that story will be told and that movie will be done.”
— Schwarzenegger

Badass details right? the actor also revealed that the script is complete, and that the studio is currently searching for the perfect director to helm the bring the franchise back to its roots.

When you stay in shape, you do turn back the clock, so I feel great and the last few movies that I’ve done, I’ve done many of my own stunts. I did all the physical stuff and it didn’t wipe me out and I have plenty of energy and feel really terrific. So I am absolutely convinced that I can do the Conan movie and do the horseback riding, the sword fights, and all the fighting.
— Schwarzenegger

For someone like me, who grew up re-watching over and over again the first two Conan films starring Schwarzenegger and than witness the horrendous failure that was Jason Momoa's Conan a few years ago. This is the most excited I've been about a beloved franchise returning to the big-screen ever! I'm really excited to see who they get to direct Conan the Conqueror, if done right it can be a return to form for Arnold Schwarzenegger who has had some misses over the past few years.

Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think? Are you excited to see Arnold back as Conan? Why or why not?

Conan the Conqueror does not yet have a release date.
