One of the producers of the long-gestating “Conan the Barbarian” sequel – which will see Arnold Schwarzenegger make a reprise as the title character – suggests that the film might actually start filming next year.
While talking to The Arnold Fans, Fredrik Malmberg said Schwarzenegger has planned “The Legend of Conan” to be his follow-up to “Terminator : Genesis”.
“We want to polish up the script, specifically about the characters…but we don’t think it will take long. We’ll probably have this turned in around September after the holiday and then we’ll take it to the studio and if they’re happy, we can hopefully start (production) in the Spring (2015).”
While no directors have been approached yet, “a lot of directors have come fourth and expressed interest and that they like Conan and want to be involved when we’re at that stage”, says Malmberg. “The studio said they want the script to be ready before we officially approach the directors. But we have been in touch with old great names and new fresh faces. We’re excited about finding the right guy for that.”
