Arnold Schwarzenegger is gearing up to reprise his role in a sequel to the 1982 flick Conan the Barbarian, the movie's producer and co-writer Chris Morgan revealed in a new interview on Sunday, May 24.
Arnold, 67, starred in the original Conan film — which tells the story of a young barbarian who seeks vengeance for the death of his parents — alongside Oscar winner James Earl Jones.

"[The film's] tone is a logical extension of the character established in the '82 film," Morgan said of the upcoming movie, titled The Legend of Conan.

"When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a thief, a warrior, a pirate, a king, a legend — and is now an older man," he told TheArnoldFans.com.

Morgan additionally hinted at least three members of the movie's original cast will join Arnold in the series' reboot, which is set to begin filming this fall. The project was originally announced in 2012, but was put on hold because of the actor's previous commitment to the Terminator reboot, Terminator Genisys.
The new movie will directly follow 1982's Conan The Barbarian and will not include any reference to the franchise's other films, including Conan the Destroyer — a 1984 flick in which Arnold reprised the titular role — and a 2011 Conan the Barbarian remake.
