Between the memoir and ill-advised movie sequels, Arnold Schwarzenegger is mining his past for every dollar he can pump out of it. In the spirit, he’s throwing another ill-advised sequel into the mix. In spring of 2011, the Jason Momoa-starring Conan reboot failed to relaunch the series which leaves the door open for another reboot. This time starring the O.G. Conan, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The 65-year old will star in Legend of Conan. It’s planned as a direct sequel to the 1982 original and will ignore the sequels, but not the fact that Conan is totally an old guy now. “This movie picks up Conan where Arnold is now in his life, and we will be able to use the fact that he has aged in this story. I love the property of Conan so much that I wouldn’t touch it unless we came up with something worthy. We think this is a worthy successor to the original film. Think of this as Conan’s Unforgiven,” producer and possible screenwriter on the movie Chris Morgan (47 Ronin, Wanted) told Deadline.

Momoa will have no connection to the film, and it’s unknown what the plot specifics will be. Also no word if Arnold will pass the mantle over to a son for sequels. Or to a secret son birthed with the wench hired to sweep his hut. There’s just so many places this plot can go.

First a Terminator, then a Governator, now a Terminator once again?

Since “The Great Arnold Schwarzenegger Tweet of 2011,” offers have been coming in for the former Kindergarden Cop. Apparently the hottest offer being discussed is for Universal to team him up with director Justin Lin (three Fast and Furious movies) and writer Chris Morgan (also three Fast and Furious movies) for another Terminator movie. So, yes, Arnold wouldn’t just “be back,” he’d “be back” in the role where he says he’ll “be back.” Can’t get more “back” than that.

The franchise, once hotter than molten steel, has cooled off considerably in recent years. It would take some serious time traveling to change the weak box office numbers from Terminator: Salvation, and legal troubles + bankruptcy issues with the property’s former owner have left many doubting whether Terminator has a future. However, with Schwarzenegger now in the picture once again, we might not have to say “hasta la vista” after all. (Deadline)
