It could be Arnold's next film...
In an interview with The Arnold Fans, The Legend of Conan producer Fredrick Maimberg revealed that they were pleased with the film script (written by Andrea Berloff) and were hoping to start production in the spring of next year. Here are highlights:
On polishing the script: "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)."
On who might direct: "We haven't been talking with directors 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 but 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."
On the film being Arnold's next movie: "That's the intention. Arnold wants that. I would like that and I know everyone from the studio side would like that but it's all in the script. We need to get the script where it's right and ready to go. In the movie world, nowadays, when a movie is a go movie, it happen very quickly. It's up to Universal to set the date for it to be released but personally, I don't think it has to be a summer movie. I think there's plenty of examples of big event movies being released in the winter like the Matrix movies and The Lord of the Rings. I can see this being a winter movie as well as a summer movie. This iconic role of Arnold as Conan is so big that it can be year round."
