Conan the Conqueror Opens Following Conan the Barbarian


Will Beall, who is currently writing the Aquaman movie, is also writing the Arnold Schwarzenegger Conan the Conqueror (Legend Of Conan) film.

Talking with SlashFilm, Beall offers some new details in which is he co-writing Conan the Conqueror with Chris Morgan. 

“It opens there,” Beall said. “It opens with this [hand on the chin]. It’s where you have to. It’s the sequel that we were promised and never got. I’m 11 when my father took me to see Conan the Barbarian which you should never take an 11-year-old kid to. It was a life changing thing. It’s an unbelievable movie. It comes back to [director John] Milius, right? There’s nobody better, and it’s a real movie. It’s a truthful movie. Chris and I from the very beginning said there’s no reason to do it unless it’s a worthy sequel to Milius’s Conan, and I think we’ve got that. I really do.”

Beall further confirmed Conan the Conqueror is under development.

“Chris and I are continuing to hone,” Beall said. “I think that’s going to be a great movie actually.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger also offered a while back that Conan the Conqueror sees him "sitting on the throne for years and years - decades, and then all of the sudden, the time comes when they want to overthrow me. So that story WILL be told and that movie WILL be done."

No release date has been announced as of yet for Conan the Conqueror.
