Schwarzenegger excited about Conan movie

1 of 1 Schwarzenegger:
Schwarzenegger: "It will be great to be back"

Arnold Schwarzenegger has said he is thrilled to be making The Legend of Conan after waiting so long to reprise the character.

Bang Showbiz quotes Schwarzenegger, who starred in 1982 and 1984 Conan movies, as saying: "They said, 'Do you want to play Conan?' I thought, 'Oh, it will be great to be back' because it's all of the original characters."

He continued: "I've tried to do more Conan movies [in the past], but the people who have owned the rights I didn't want to do Conan movies with, if they weren't on the level of big movies. You know, it needed the budget behind it, the director behind it - then it can be a proper movie."

Schwarzenegger also expressed his happiness at returning in Terminator: Genesis next year: ''So the Terminator movie came to me, and I felt very honoured because there are people who they could have got to do it [instead] but they decided to cast me back in the film.''
