LOS ANGELES -- Arnold Schwarzenegger is coming back -- as Conan the Barbarian.
Universal Pictures says California's former governor will star in "The Legend of Conan," an action film being developed for the actor. Deadline Hollywood was the first to report the news Friday.
The 65-year-old Schwarzenegger starred in two previous films about the mythic hero: 1982's "Conan the Barbarian" and 1984's "Conan the Destroyer."
Schwarzenegger told Deadline he loves the character and is "honoured" to play him again.
