    I'll go as far as saying Arnold better be in it or I won't see it. Arnold is Conan, period.

    The Script sounds interesting.

    My only question is this. How in the world is Arnold, at his age going to be able to portray Conan, who is massive and not old? I loved Arnold in the original Conan, and he did a great job, but there's no way he can put back on the muscle, and look young enough to play this role. However, I don't know who else could come close to portraying Conan.

    Terrell,
    To answer your age question seek out Hour of the Dragon by Robert E. Howard.

    I can agree with that todd. He's terrible. Besides, nobody would go see it.

    Arnold can still play Conan, because Conan is a character that ages. So Arnold, in my mind, is the only one who can play him. King Conan, if it ever gets made, would be about Conan on one of his last adventures. He's softened up a bit from a King's life, but still has the ass-kickin' spirit.

    This makes far more sense than Terminator 3. Cyborgs don't age!

    I guess that's reasonable. All I've got to say is Arnold better hit the gym, and I mean hard. He's a lot smaller than he used to be. I'd guess he would need to pack on another 25-30 pounds of muscle, at least. And at his age, that would be difficult at best.

    I feel there is NO ONE that can do the role except for Arnold. If Arnold does not do it, then I will not go see it.

    I'm not a fan of Conan, but I can see them casting The Rock in the role of Conan. Even if it is a shockingly bad idea.

    If they want to cast a professional wrestler, I think Triple H would make the best Conan.

    God help us all. No wrestlers, definitely no Rock, and certainly no Triple H. Anyone that has seen the Scorpion King trailer can attest to the fact that the Rock is godawful. And HHH would be even worse, if that's possible. No wrestlers in leading roles, please.

    I don't think The Rock is nowhere near as bad in the trailer as you seem to think, Terrell. Also, it's not like The Mummy movies had good acting.

    C'mon Thi.. The Rock sucks horribly. And you may be right about The Mummy, but it was superior to anything Rock has and could ever do. If you want a wrestler playing Conan, fine. But for people who want someone that can actually carry a movie, we want Arnold, or someone with at least a bit of acting ability.

    Sorry Thi. I can't agree with you. Rock makes Brendan Fraser look genius. Besides, you put Rock in there, and it will be a complete bomb at the box office, just as the Scorpion King is gonna be.
