The Dom Post reports:
Wellington might be in line to host the sequel to the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian, Arnold Schwarzenegger says.
Universal Studios was looking “very closely” at using Sir Peter Jackson’s Park Road studios in Wellington for the sequel, Schwarzenegger told the website Ain’t It Cool.
“It could very well be that one of the places they’re looking very closely right now is Jackson’s studio in New Zealand,” he said.
The former governor of California has been campaigning for 10 years to get a new Conan movie made. The film, reportedly called The Legend of Conan, is due for release next year.
The script was being written. Filming was likely to begin by the end of this year, with him in the lead role, he said.
Superb. And think if Conan also became a massive hit. Do you think we’d see Winston demanding Arnie refund the film subsidy?
