Arnold Schwarzenegger to be back as Conan the Barbarian


Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed that there could be a sequel to his 1987 film The Running Man.

The 67-year-old action hero said that there are “rumblings” of a follow-up to his 1987 sci-fi movie, while also giving updates on other sequel projects, reported Digital Spy.

Speaking about returning to the role of Conan the Barbarian in The Legend of Conan, he said, “It’s an honour to be asked back after all these years, back to the franchise. This is really wild.”

“Harrison Ford was recently asked to get back to Star Wars, but it’s very rare to come back after so many years. They’re doing a Twins sequel, to be called Triplets. I’ve read the first draft. There’s rumblings of a new Running Man movie, so it’s a great honour to be asked back,” Schwarzenegger said.

On returning to franchises such as Terminator, he said: “It comes back to bodybuilding, I’m used to doing cardiovascular training every day. Therefore I’m still in good shape, and I can do the action and have the energy to do these movies. They feel comfortable to ask me back and know that I can pull it off and do the stunts.”

Schwarzenegger will star in Terminator: Genisys, to be released in the UK on July 3, 2015 and in the US on July 1
