Plenty of people. Some of the best Conan stories were the ones where he's past his prime.

Arnold's not exactly the person to do a good job of that.

He was miscast as Conan already for starters.

People who are a fan of Robert E. Howard's writings about Conan.

People who are a fan of sword and sorcery movies.

People who are not hung up on the youth culture.

People who were fans of Arnie's Conan movies.

None of which would be enough for this movie to be a hit.

You mean the last Conan movie that had no big name actors, director or other real attracting talent?

Arnold, even in his 60s is a bigger draw than the entire cast and crew of that film.

His drawing power as of late is questionable at best.

I don't remember saying, asserting, or prophetizeing that they will make it a hit.

The point of my post was - everyone else was saying how excited they were to see Arnold in the role again, and YOU, being a troll, said Who wants to watch a movie about Conan in his mid-60's?....and I then gave you a list of people who would like to see a movie about Conan in his 60's.

We get it....YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THIS DEVELOPEMENT.....you have said it several times, we know it, we get it, we know your view point, we know your opinion........now move on to another thread to bring your joy and sunshine.

It sounds more like you have some weird vendetta against Arnie.

Even if it flops, who cares? There'll be a reboot in eight years with another young actor.

Loved the Momoa Conan. It was the voice and how he moved, especially in combat that sold it for me.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Updates on The Legend of Conan

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=98827

Quote:
Word broke last fall that Universal Pictures is planning a return to the Hyborian Age with The Legend of Conan, bringing Arnold Schwarzenegger back as the Robert E. Howard Cimmerian warrior. Ain't It Cool News caught up with Schwarzenegger at a special screening of his latest, The Last Stand, and learned that the project is likely to shoot later this year and will potentially set up production in New Zealand.

"[Universal] finally came forward," Schwarzenegger explains, "and said, 'You're absolutely right. The previous regime has missed the boat here. We want to pick it up. We're going to buy the rights and we're going to be serious about it and make a quality film with an A-director and with A-writers and so on. And we want you to participate in this. We want you to star and you to play Conan. We're going to take a story where Conan is at that age so it's totally believable and you're not looking like a 30-year old action guy.'"

“The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior, and this is the take of the film we will make,” producer Frederik Malmberg said in the original announcement. “It’s that Nordic Viking mythic guy who has played the role of king, warrior, soldier and mercenary, and who has bedded more women than anyone, nearing the last cycle of his life. He knows he’ll be going to Valhalla, and wants to go out with a good battle.”

Not sure how I'd feel about it. I love Dwayne, but I'm not 100% sure he'd fit. Still, can't wait for this.

I'm stoked that they seem to want to keep it a mostly serious film. I love the "in-joke" feel of Arnie's latest film escapades but Conan should steer clear of that.
