Writer hired for new Conan movie

Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back as Conan in a third film

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Conan reboot has taken a step forwards after a writer was hired to pen the script.

Universal Pictures has signed a deal with World Trade Centre scribe Andrea Berloff to write the script for The Legend Of Conan, reported Deadline.

Arnie, 66, got his big break in Conan The Barbarian in 1982 and followed it up with a sequel, Conan The Destroyer, in 1984.

The films ended with the barbarian king sitting on his throne and the new instalment is apparently about his efforts to stay there.

Producer Fredrik Malmberg previously said the new film would "pick up Conan where Arnold is now in his life".

"We will be able to use the fact that he has aged in this story," he said. "I love the property of Conan so much that I wouldn't touch it unless we came up with something worthy. We think this is a worthy successor to the original film. Think of this as Conan's Unforgiven."
