Legend of Conan Will Update On The Adventures Of Conan Says Producer


4409 A little over a month ago it was revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be back as Conan The Barbarian in the "King Conan" movie Legend of Conan.

Writer-producer Chris Morgan now offers up some details on the general direction of the movie and says it's not a reboot or a remake, but gives us an update on the adventures of Conan the Barbarian, who now rules over his own kingdom.

"Not a reboot, not a remake. Just an update.," Morgan tells the Hero Complex. "Where has the character been all this time? A catch-up with Conan."

"He’s not going out and fighting battles, but he ends up getting drawn into something,” Morgan continued. “And he has to access the barbarian he was in his youth. I love that Conan has been many things in his life, notably a pirate, a major tactician and a commander of men. In this movie, we’re going to tap into some of those things – things you haven’t seen on screen yet.

"I want the warrior whose joints have started to fuse together, who has to crack the cartilage so he can pick up a sword again. I want the guy who’s not necessarily lost a step, but there’s some rust he has to shake off. I want to embrace that. It makes it a greater hero story.

“Conan needs to be faced with challenges. The greatest challenge to him isn’t the armies that are set before him. It’s, on some level, self-doubt, a little bit of slowing down and forcing yourself to be heroic beyond what people expect of you. What I don’t want is for him to step back in and look the same. That would defeat the purpose of our story.”

Morgan notes Legend of Conan has a 2014 release date, which he would like to write, but he is contracted to do another Fast and Furious movie so he just might be having to hire a writer, but regardless, will be on board in full capacity.

No matter what, I’ll be there every step of the way,” Morgan told the Hero Complex. “Whether it’s penning this quickly or selecting the writer, it’s me guiding the process or being a real honest-to-god producer. I’m excited either way. I’m really, really stoked.”
