Ah-nuld Updates Us on The Legend of Conan and Terminator 5

In an interview with Brit website Metro to promote his actioner “The Last Stand” (currently out on DVD and Blu-ray), former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger provided some updates on a couple of his more anticipated projects. One of those happens to be “The Legend of Conan”, the film that, I think, most of his fans probably want to see a sequel to. But he also has “Terminator 5″ still in the pipeline, though at his point it’s going to take a lot of fancy talk to convince us why the killer machines keep printing out 60-year old cyborgs.

He starts off with “Terminator 5″, then segues into “The Legend of Conan”:

We’re writing [Terminator 5] now. There are three projects being written that involve me. One is Terminator 5, the other is a Conan movie that Universal is doing and there’s the sequel to Twins, which is called Triplets. We’ll all look quite different in that. The third triplet is Eddie Murphy, so figure that one out.

Holy crap. They’re doing a sequel to “Twins”. To be called “Triplets”. And co-starring Eddie Murphy. Yikes. I don’t know if I’ve just missed this news when it was reported in the past, or if I just pretended that I missed them because this sounds like such a bad, bad idea.

I honestly don’t know if “Triplets” is a step forward for the former Governator in his attempt to reclaim his box office crown or a step backwards. Murphy hasn’t exactly been, er, box office material himself these last few years. But maybe Schwarzenegger is taking the “Expendables” approach — if one former box office champ can’t reclaim the crown on his own, why not two? Or better yet, three? It’s worked for two “Expendables” movie so far…

Cool Stories From Zergnet

    REALLY? Triplets? If this was done back when Twins was made I’d be all for it but now? Uh uh.
    Also still mad I’m not getting a proper sequel to Momoa’s Conan. Movie script sucked but he was great in the part.

    I’m all for Arnie getting back in the saddle for the Conan and Terminator sequels. The Twins sequel, eh, not so much! I remember hearing rumblings of this project awhile ago. It was a stupid idea then and it’s a stupid idea now.
    The Conan film would be very cool with him playing a grizzled, battle worn, king trying to retain his throne against insurgents and the like.
    The Terminator sequel is a bit harder to adapt since the premise has always been that he is a cybornetic killing machine and all. However, I think that if they do a story comprise of Arnold playing the man who the original terminators were based on and having a CGI terminator in hois likeness, like they did at the end of Salvation, it could work. New characters perhaps? I’m pretty sure that while an integral part of the franchise, we’ve all had our fill of John, Sarah and Reese. Maybe a cameo of Christian Bale as the savior of mankind would work but having some new blood in there would breathe some much needed new life into the series IMO.
