The return of Conan

Los Angeles, Oct. 27 (Reuters): Arnold Schwarzenegger is reprising one of his most famous movie roles — Conan the Barbarian — for an upcoming sequel, Universal Pictures said yesterday.

Schwarzenegger, 65, will play the sword-swinging hero in The Legend of Conan, 30 years after the film that launched the Austrian body-builder as a Hollywood star.

“I always loved the Conan character, and I'm honoured to be asked to step into the role once again,” Schwarzenegger said. The original films, grossed more than $70 million at U.S. box office.
