It was one of his iconic roles that made him an action star. Arnold Schwarzenegger is reportedly coming back to a role that everyone knows him from. One that a generation grew up with.

No, it’s not the Terminator. Reports are Universal is going back to “Conan the Barbarian” with Arnold attached!

First Showing quoted Fredrik Malmberg as saying:

“The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior, and this is the take of the film we will make… It’s that Nordic Viking mythic guy who has played the role of king, warrior, soldier and mercenary, and who has bedded more women than anyone, nearing the last cycle of his life. He knows he’ll be going to Valhalla, and wants to go out with a good battle.”
