Arnold Schwarzenegger explains why age isn’t a factor in “The Legend of Conan”

“The Legend of Conan” is a thing, it is happening, and it is coming whether we like it or not. Though the “Conan the Barbarian” sequel is still in its planning stages, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been talking the movie up while he’s been doing press for “The Last Stand.”

During a conversation with TheArnoldFans.com, Schwarzenegger and producer Fredrik Malmberg admitted that the movie still hasn’t been greenlit. If it is, though, they hope to have Peter Jackson’s WETA work on the film.

“We’re concentrating on the story and the script, and then we’ll go out and find the right director who has the same passion as the rest of us in the group,” Malmberg said. “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 ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Hobbit guys.’ They are huge ‘Conan’ fans and they would be great to be involved on the creative side.”

As for Schwarzenegger being — for lack of a better term — old, he said he feels as good now as he did when he made the original “Conan” movie. That’s a good thing, since “The Legend of Conan” is said to ignore the events of both “Conan the Destroyer” and 2011’s “Conan the Barbarian” and pick up after the 1984 “Conan the Barbarian” movie.

“Age doesn’t mean anything to me, because I work out every day. I work out twice a day, as a matter of fact,” Schwarzenegger said. “So for me, to get on the set and to swing the sword around again and to ride the horses and all those things doesn’t mean anything [does not scare me], because I feel like I did thirty years ago. So as long as I stay in shape, that’s the key thing, and to keep your body young.”

He added, “Even though you do feel the pain when you wipe out and when you do your fight scenes and you get more sore and the body doesn’t come back as quickly and all this … but just grind through it, you know? That’s what it’s all about!”

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
