Arnold who starred in the NINETEEN EIGHTY TWO movie will star in the (second) reboot of the franchise called "The Legend of Conan" in the summer of 2014. You might have seen the Conan released last year staring, Jason Momoa. Arnold will reprise his role twenty-eight years after he originally played Conan and film skips over the 1984 sequel starring Schwarzenegger as well as the franchise reboot.
"After the original seminal movie, all that came after looked silly to me," Producer Chris Morgan told Deadline. "Robert E. Howard's mythology and some great philosophy from Nietzsche to Atilla the Hun was layered in the original film. People say, he didn't speak for the first 20 minutes of the film, but that was calculated in depicting this man who takes control of life with his own hand. This movie picks up Conan where Arnold is now in his life, and we will be able to use the fact that he has aged in this story."
