Chris Morgan Talks "Legend of Conan"

"Fast Five" scribe Chris Morgan is penning the script for the upcoming sequel "The Legend of Conan" which will see Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise his signature role. Now, Morgan has talked about the new film and what we can expect to see:

"[Conan is] not going out and fighting battles, but he ends up getting drawn into something and he has to access the barbarian he was in his youth. I love that Conan has been many things in his life, notably a pirate, a major tactician and a commander of men. In this movie, we're going to tap into some of those things – things you haven’t seen on screen yet."

"I want the warrior whose joints have started to fuse together, who has to crack the cartilage so he can pick up a sword again. I want the guy who's not necessarily lost a step, but there's some rust he has to shake off. I want to embrace that. It makes it a greater hero story."

"Conan needs to be faced with challenges. The greatest challenge to him isn't the armies that are set before him. It's [also] self-doubt, a little bit of slowing down and forcing yourself to be heroic beyond what people expect of you. What I don't want is for him to step back in and look the same. That would defeat the purpose of our story."
