Conan back to the Big Screen?

For years there have been rumors, but is it still possible?

My only concern is this part:

As recently as this year, Schwarzenegger continues to make it clear he would love to play an older version of Conan. According to the actor, the newest version of the King Conan script would feature a 70-year-old version of the character now reigning as king. While Schwarzenegger loves the screenplay John Milius is working on and apparently still talking to the director about it, what’s apparently keeping the movie from happening lies with the current rights-holders of the franchise. “The only one who really has to pull the trigger there is the people who own the Conan rights to do a movie. Let’s go to Netflix or whoever it is, let’s hire a director who’s very creative and can elevate the project to make it a winning project,” Schwarzenegger said in March. “I hope it will be done very soon because I think it’s a great idea.”

Who are the rights-holders? Does FunCom have a say in this to? :thinking: :worried:

Nope, Funcom has no power here :wink:

It is Cabinet ent., formerly Paradox ent.

They could make a tv serie following the aoc story line :slight_smile:

I’d propose to call it “Deuk, the warrior prince”. Following the adventures of this brutal, charismatic warrior, living in era of conan as king.

They worked with FunCom already (scroll down to 2011)
This project wasn’t very successful I think :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: :roll_eyes:

Ye… but what was the root cause for this?

I think the story line in aoc is pretty good and enough for a couple seasons. …
Just have to make it enjoyable to watch.

Maybe bring a third party on board that knows how to build a Cinematic Universe?

Maybe then some money will flow to AoC again :money_mouth_face:
