Universal Options "The Wicked + The Divine" for TV Adaptation
The Legend of Conan continues to move forward, based on Paradox Entertainment CEO Fredrik Malmberg’s recent comments on the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring fantasy epic. Indeed, it’s progressing in such a way that Malmberg believes this won’t be the last time fans see Schwarzenegger as Conan.
“I think if we do this right, we can do two more Conan movies right after,” he tells The Arnold Fans. “I think Game of Thrones also shows a huge interest in fantasy.”
According to Malmberg, Legend of Conan picks up after the Cimmerian warrior has already served as King, and has been gone for some time.
“People say, ‘Do you remember the good ol’ days when Conan was around?’ And now it’s time for him to come back,” Malmberg says. “In the stories and you can also see it when he’s sitting on the [throne] and the narration on that last scene of the movie … ‘with a troubled brow’ … you can tell he’s not really happy being king. So, it’s time for him to go out and do battle.”
