Arnold wearing a wig will look ridiculous....yep, because there is no way possible that Arnold may grow his hair out or actually have some makeup/wardrobe people that don't shop for wigs at the Wal-Mart Halloween aisle working on the movie.
Agreed with you on everything 100%!

Rambo, Rocky Balboa, Gran Torino. As long as this film is moderately budgeted it can make a hell of a profit.

So is this going to be a new trend for a failed reboot? Going back to the original actor to reprise the role 25 years later? Yikes.

It's well and truly better than the alternative of no Conan movies at all.

I have a feeling they are going to wait to see how some of arnold's already filmed comeback films perform before this goes into actual production.

Based on the performance of the last conan film the conan name doesn't exactly resonate with audiences like it did a few decades ago. So this film is going to be riding on arnold 100%.

lol true.

Since Arnold started his film career with Conan it would be appropriate to end it with Conan.

Sylvester Stallone completely proved this wrong. Emphatically. So did Scorsese for that matter with The Color of Money.

Hell yeah! As someone who can't stand the concept of a reboot, I completely love this as an un-reboot. I've wanted King Conan since I was a kid, I thought that crappy reboot put an end to that.

Those are the exceptions, not the rule. I don't have faith in this project, regardless how you guys spin it.

Eh, if it keeps him away from whatever is left of the Terminator franchise, you won't hear another peep out of me.

****, he could make ten of these for all I care.

Arnold still looks awesome and can most definitely play the role in question.

Conan the Destroyer did not bomb, it actually performed pretty well at the box office.

It was a critical failure due to the Conan fans not liking the campiness of the sequel. Ironically, I really liked it and this is coming from an anti-Roger Moore fan!

As straight-up 80's shlock, I liked Conan the Destroyer for what it was. It's obviously been 'Live Free or Die Harded/Thunderdomed/Moinrakered' to target a bigger audience.

If you cannot be a draw, you get the boot from the studio. Brandon Routh will tell you that.
