    I've got that awesome Basil Poledoris music rumblin in my head right now!

    FROM IMDB

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning as Conan The Barbarian - nearly 20 years after the mystical warrior's last movie. Arnold broke into Hollywood's big time with 1982's Conan The Barbarian and its 1984 sequel Conan The Destroyer - and is now waiting for the script to be finalized for a third instalment. Writer and film-maker John Milius, who directed the first Conan movie, is currently trimming his screenplay following advice from the Wachowski Brothers, who made The Matrix. "I just had a cigar with him the other day," Schwarzenegger reveals. "He's rewriting it as we speak, because he has written it, and it was a 168-page script. One of the Wachowski Brothers called and told him the script would take too much time and be a three-and-a-half-hour movie, he should cut it down to 120 pages and take certain things out. And that's what he's doing right now."

    I am looking forward to this movie but hopefully they will be more faithful to the original stories this time. Although the first movie was good I think they had to combine the Valeria and Belit characters.
    In a related note, John Buscema (one of the comic greats who drew Conan for years) passed away this month. Here is the link:

    It will be interesting to see what the Wachowski Bros do with the story this round.

    It's about F-ing time! I've been saying they need to do this for years now. Crom has finally answered my prayers![​IMG]

    It's sad to hear about John Buscema, I used to sketch from his drawings all the time as a kid. He'll be missed... [​IMG]
