Meet the new Conan.



Before he was the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger was Conan the Barbarian. The 1982 film wasn't in the same league as some of Ah-nold's bigger hits, but it remains a cult favorite. Today, the first trailer for the remake, starring the formidible Jason Momoa in the title role, hit the Web.

Momoa, who will receive CinemaCon's Rising Star of 2011 Award, may be best known for his work on "Stargate: Atlantis" and "Baywatch." Several years ago, Momoa and Lisa Bonet made news after they named their child Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa. Momoa's mother later explained that Nakoa means "warrior."

Should Momoa's version of "Conan the Barbarian" be a hit, interest in the actor with intimidation to burn is sure to rise. Indeed, he's already surging in the Search box. Over the past seven days, online lookups for "jason momoa" have flexed their muscles, jumping 44%.

You can check out the new trailer for "Conan the Barbarian" below. The film is scheduled to hit theaters this August.

I'll call it now; the Schwarzeneggar reboot will be shit. It will be a cashing in of an old franchise, reliant on glitz over story and watered down by corporate groupthink. Ahnuld's version of Blues Brothers 2000.

This was some of the coolest movie news i've heard in a long time, picking up where the first left off, the grizzled warrior king on his throne.

I can only hope they dont try to PG13 it, go R & keep it gory.

Nah, if they stay in the spirit of the first one, this could be killer.

Arnold Schwarzenegger to Reprise Barbarian Role in THE LEGEND OF CONAN Reboot

Just minutes after we reported on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new look in David Ayer’s Ten, we get word that the former Governor will return to his roots in The Legend of Conan. The reboot comes from Universal, which has worldwide rights on the film. The studio launched the original film in 1982 with Schwarzenegger as Robert E. Howard’s mythic barbarian. The property hit a bit of a snag with the 2011 reboot Conan the Barbarian with Jason Momoa at Millenium Films, but Universal has high hopes for the new project. Hit the jump for more including the expected storyline of The Legend of Conan.

Deadline reports that Universal and Schwarzenegger are reuniting to bring Conan back to life. The reboot will be produced by Fredrik Malmberg, CEO of Paradox Entertainment, and Universal’s writer and producer, Chris Morgan. Morgan cracked the story and may write the script, but the studio wants the picture on screens in summer of 2014. He previously wrote the screenplay for The Fast and the Furious 6 and has the job for the seventh installment, but may not be finished writing it up by the time Conan roles into production.

On the story front, The Legend of Conan is tied directly to the original, skipping over both the Schwarzenegger sequel and the Momoa misfire (Momoa is not expected to be involved in The Legend of Conan). As Malmberg put it:



The film is a dream project for Morgan, who had this to say:



The story that they’ve come up with and the passion they’re bringing to the table are both promising for a reboot. A note of concern comes with whether or not the studio will pursue a hard R rating. Morgan again comments:

“I loved the choices they made in that film. You start with the wholesale slaughter and death of Conan’s village at the hand of the warlord played by James Earl Jones, and you see young Conan chained to a wheel as he becomes stronger. Then he’s a pit fighter, and later basically a stud bull before he meets the first kind person of his life, who lets him go. All of that horrific stuff happened for a reason, and then an act of kindness sends him on his journey. Will that level of violence be there? Absolutely, but only if it serves a character who lives by that barbarian law of the wild, who is capable of extreme violence and rage, but who has created his own code and operates from within it. By the end of that film, Conan became a certain character, and this film picks him up there, as he faces different challenges that include dealing with age.”

And you can’t have a Conan story without hearing from the man himself. Scharzenegger was quoted as follows:

The weapons, armor and costumes in the '82 Conan were awesome. Not so with the last CTB. Mamoa looked good as Conan and his physique was a better fit for the part. Eveything other than Mamoa and the wide shots of the cities looked bad in the 2011 CTB. The CGI was unimpressive and not enirely convincing. The costumery and weapon/armor design in the movie was uninspired and nothing memorable.

Ahnold's Conan had a lot of great armor and costumes. Ahnold had 9 costume changes and wore 3 sets of armor. both of Thulsa Doom's henchmen had multiple sets of armor too. Doom's armor was badass. the weapons they used in the movie are all well designed and unique looking.













/\ /\ /\ There's nothing in the 2011 Conan that can compare to these.
