Arnold Schwarzenegger to reprise Conan movie role
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Arnold Schwarzenegger is reprising one of his most famous movie roles - Conan the Barbarian - for an upcoming sequel, Universal Pictures said on Friday.
Schwarzenegger, 65, will play the sword-swinging hero in The Legend Of Conan, 30 years after the film that launched the Austrian body-builder as a Hollywood star.
"I always loved the Conan character, and I'm honoured to be asked to step into the role once again," Schwarzenegger said in a statement.
The original films, 1982's Conan The Barbarian and 1984's Conan The Destroyer, together grossed more than US$70 million (S$85 million) at United States box office.
