Expect The Legend Of Conan to shoot later this year, as Arnold Schwarzenegger discusses the project...

With The Last Stand hitting cinemas in a few weeks, giving Arnold Schwarzenegger his first big screen lead role since Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines, the man himself has been hitting the publicity circuit. And in a chat with AintItCool, he's given an update as to the progress of The Legend Of Conan.

Schwarzenegger revealed that Universal picked up the rights to make a new film after agreeing with hom that "the previous regime has missed the boat here". He continued, saying that the studio told him "we're going to be serious about it and make a quality film with an A-director and with A-writers and so on". Luring Schwarzenegger back, he said he was told that "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 film is looking like it's going to shoot at some point later in 2013, with New Zealand the likely home for the production. When we hear more about it, we'll let you know...
