Arnold Schwarzenegger confirms Conan reboot

Oct 15 2012, 8:59am CDT | by

Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed he is in line to star in a remake of his old action classic, 'Conan the Barbarian'.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed a 'Conan the Barbarian' remake is happening.
The 65-year-old muscleman has revealed he will start work on a 'Conan' reboot after his next project finishes shooting, and hopes original scriptwriter John Milius will be involved.
He told French website MadMovies.com: "We've already had discussion about this, because it's a project that is particularly dear to me. I must first shoot 'Ten' with David Ayer, but then we're going to focus on 'Conan'. It remains to be seen who will direct and if John Milius will write the script."
The former Governor of California previously admitted he would like to revisit some of his old action film classics, including 'Terminator', 'Twins' and 'True Lies'.
Speaking on his tour of the UK to promote his new autobiography 'Total Recall', Arnold paid homage to his infamous 'Terminator' line and said acting is where his passion lies, especially since the salary is infinitely better than that of a politician.
He joked: "I didn't take a penny of my salary during my terms. After all, it was petty cash compared to what you make in the movies."
He added: "Thank you all for coming. I'll be back."
The action heavyweight has also teamed up with director Justin Lin ('Fast Five') to plan the storyline for 'Terminator 5' which will allegedly take place in a parallel timeline, according to DenOfGeek.com.
Arnold was last seen in 'The Expendables 2' alongside Jean-Claude Van Damme and Sylvester Stallone.

So Is ‘Terminator: Genisys’ a Reboot or What?

Oct 30 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

We know how Terminator: Genisys fits into the Terminator franchise in our world. It’s the fifth feature, and the first since 2009′s Terminator Salvation. What’s harder to suss out is how the story fits into the Terminator mythology. Is it a reboot? A sequel? Or something else entirely? The answer, it turns out, might be “all of the above.” Laeta Kalogridis (who wrote the script with Patrick Lussier) confirms Terminator: Genisys isn’t rewriting the Terminator saga, but following ...

Eddie Murphy & 'Driving Miss Daisy' Director 'Cook' Up New Drama

Oct 20 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: First Showing

Fans will see Eddie Murphy get back into Axel Foley mode soon enough with Beverly Hills Cop 4 on the way. Plus, there's still that Twins sequel in the works that will team him up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in the cleverly titled Triplets. But before he makes a couple more comedies, he's going to take some time to get into drama briefly. In what will be his first non-animated, non-comedy role since the 2006 musical Dreamgirls, Empire rep ...

Who's Really to Blame for Batman and Robin - and THOSE Bat-Nipples?

Oct 15 2014 9:45am CDT | Source: movie pilot

When it comes to superhero movies, there don't come many more epic, genre-defining - and universally panned - than Batman and Robin. After all, Joel Schumacher's 1997 Bat-flick is now arguably the defining example of big-budget, studio-influenced, merchandising-sales-led superhero film-making - and a consistently popular punchline and punching bag for Bat-fans everywhere.Most of which, in fairness, is pretty reasonable - since the movie is...not great. Also, B ...

TERMINATOR: GENISYS Will Probably Be Rated PG-13; Not a Sequel or a Reboot

Oct 9 2014 10:12am CDT | Source: Collider

Paramount Pictures is already feeling pretty bullish on its new Terminator film, Terminator: Genisys (that subtitle is still idiotic), as they recently staked out release dates for two sequels to drop in 2017 and 2018, with the plan to shoot them back-to-back.  We still know very little about the nature of Genisys (*shudder*), but we do know that the lead actors are playing Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney), John C ...

Underworld 5 Will Focus on Theo James' David

Sep 11 2014 6:52pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

We reported recently that Underworld was looking to reboot and with the news today that the vampire played by Theo James, David, will be the focal point -- now we are wondering. Perhaps Underworld is rebooting in the same way that Terminator is with Genesys in that there will be a new actors cast around one familiar face (Arnold Schwarzenegger)? While James is busy working on the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, those behind the new Underworld are working out detai ...
