Warner Bros. is developing a new Conan the Barbarian
flick to be written and directed by John Milius
, the helmer behind the original 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger
reports. WWF champ The Rock
was approached to play the title role, but he had already committed to topline The Scorpion King
, an action film based on his character in The Mummy 2
. Schwarzenegger, meanwhile, reportedly may appear in the update in some capacity.
