Legend of Conan Might Start Shooting This Year Says Arnold Schwarzenegger (Video)
The new Conan movie set to star Arnold Schwarzenegger as King Conan has been put on the fast track.
Legend of Conan, which will see Arnold playing the barbarian in his later years and give an update on his adventures, looks to possibly start production by the end of this year.
Schwarzenegger spoke to AICN about the movie and not only said are things moving forward, but also said the studio is making the Legend of Conan an A-List movie with A-List directors and writers, which Arnold previously mentioned by comparing the movie to the likes of Spider-Man, Superman and Iron Man.
Interestingly enough, we learn from Arnold that he has been trying to get another Conan movie in the works for the past ten years, and now we learn that the studio is 100% behind the Austrian Oak as they have moved it to the front of the pack and told Arnold that he will be starring.
AICN news asks Arnold when we can expect work to begin on the new movie with Arnold responding, "They are rushing. They really want to get it done, so they want to start shooting sometime at the end of this year ."
Schwarzenegger also mentions they are looking at New Zealand as the location for the shoot.
