Arnold Schwarzeneggar to play Conan once again

@BiteMe-Fanboy: I'm not despite all the love I have for Arnie's Conan and the original movie. Fact is that for all it's flaws the last Conan movie had. Anyone who's read a Conan comic or better, read the original Robert E. Howard movie would know Jason Momoa is a much better Conan then Arnie ever was. Momoa actually showed us a climpse of the true Conan with his interpretation.

Plus the last thing Conan needs is for a director who's claim to fame is being the monster behind the creation of the utter violation of cinema that was the Fast and Furious movies.

lol. I love Conan, read a lot of his comics and books. Though I agree Arnold's Conan isn't really true to the books/comics I still love it... I grew up with it and have always loved the movies (yes even Conan the Destroyer). They are cheesy, but really entertaining. I for one, cannot wait to see this. But I understand why some people will not really care for this news. Also, hiring the writer that did the Fast and the Furious movies does scare me....

Oh I agree I love the original Conan movies. I watch them at least once a year. And I always have the sound track on hand when I run DnD games because it is so good. But the last Conan movie actually showed some of what the really Conan is about. Despite it being a very imperfect movie full of flaws (I still enjoyed it personally thought). But what I'd want is for Momoa to return. Have an actual talented director make the movie (and if possible an adaptation of one of the Conan stories like the God in the Bowl or Hall of the Dead) then see Arnold take on Conan again.

He is proof to me that the idiocracy is coming.

The score by Basil Poulidoris for the first film is my favorite of all time.

Hulk love Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sure, Arnold no buff anymore, but he no need to be in order to be epic. Hulk hope he play Terminator once again soon.

I love Arnie, but I've never seen Conan nor have I ever read a single Conan comic...does this make me a bad person?

Don't feel bad. Hulk never read Conan comic either.

Not mad at Arnie reprising the role (even though Momoa is a way better actor and his film was closer to source material). I love Arnie and his Conan films. My father was a huge fan so I would watch them with him when I was younger quite often. This is gonna be good for my nostalgia at least lol.
