Executive Producer Fredik Malmberg Talks LEGEND OF CONAN
Hit the jump for more!!!!!!!!!!!
As we all know Universal is moving forward with LEGEND OF CONAN with Arnold Schwarzenegger back to reprise his famous role.
Recently director Paul Verhoeven[Total Recall,Robocop] stated in an interview via The Arnold Fans that he would love to have a shot at it.
"If they asked me, I'd certainly love to -- let's put it that way," "But I don't know what the script is. I don't know what Arnold wants. I'm a big fan in fact of Conan. That's a great movie and I found that the composer, Basil Poledouris, basically inspired many of my movies [the soundtracks] like Flesh and Blood, RoboCop, Starship Troopers and Total Recall. The score of Conan is great. The style of editing that Milius used was very beautiful, and Arnold does a great job. He was really the perfect choice."
Now President and CEO of Paradox Entertainment Fredik Malmberg one of the many producers of The Legend of Conan, had his own thoughts on a director, listing Peter Jackson as one of his top picks.
"You always have to let the creative side and let the director put his stamp and mark on it so you never know what's going to happen with the production design," Malmberg said. "I mean, we're trying to get the top production people involved. We're talking all the time about who we'd see doing the production, and our dream would be to have the WETA Workshop guys, the LOTR and Hobbit guys. They are huge Conan fans and they would be great to be involved on the creative side. But if they wanted to pay homage to the old swords, we could do it. But will the director and the whole team think that’s a copout or is that an homage? So you never know.”
The Legend of Conan is currently slated for a summer 2014 debut.
I gotta say that Verhoeven is a great choice to do the movie and so is Peter Jackson. It seems that Unniversal really wants this movie to make us forget Momoa's Conan. Well that was all folks. Enjoy the soundtrack of the original Conan The Barbarian made by the ever awesome Basil Poledouris
