During a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter that covered various topics, Arnold Schwarzenegger briefly spoke about two big time franchises that are synonymous with his name: Terminator and Conan the Barbarian. He’s done with one. But not the other.
The franchise is not done. I’m done,” Schwarzenegger tells THR when speaking about the long-running Terminator franchise that he recently returned to for 2019’s Dark Fate.
The actor continues, “I got the message loud and clear that the world wants to move on with a different theme when it comes to The Terminator. Someone has to come up with a great idea. The Terminator was largely responsible for my success, so I always would look at it very fondly. The first three movies were great. Number four [Salvation] I was not in because I was governor. Then five [Genisys] and six [Dark Fate] didn’t close the deal as far as I’m concerned. We knew that ahead of time because they were just not well written.”
In regards to Conan, Schwarzenegger is a whole lot more hopeful.
He tells THR, “It’s been pending for the last 10 years. [Fredrik] Malmberg owns the rights. He comes to me and says, ‘Oh, I have a deal with Netflix,’ and when we ask Netflix, they don’t know anything about it. It’s one of those crazy things. I hope he figures it out.
I think you do it like Unforgiven, where you play the age. There’s a great script out there that John Milius wrote, and others have written one. The story is there. There are directors who want to do it. But [Malmberg] has the rights, and until he sells the rights for one or two movies, or for the franchise, there’s nothing you can do about it.”
Schwarzenegger of course played Conan in the 1980s feature films Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer, and he has been vocal about trying to get a new Conan movie off the ground for a while now. At one point in time, The Legend of Conan was intended to be a direct sequel to the 1982 movie, with Schwarzenegger returning as an older Conan.
Will it ever happen? Stay tuned for more as we hear it.

Filming is officially underway in Vancouver, Canada on our slasher All My Friends Are Dead, from Cinedigm (CIDM), Roundtable Entertainment, and Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment (FME). THR first shared the news.
The 90s-throwback slasher stars award-winning actress Jade Pettyjohn (Destroyer) and international sensation JoJo Siwa in the newest film franchise from genre veteran Marcus Dunstan (SAW IV-7, The Collector) and Happy Death Day Producer John Baldecchi.
All My Friends Are Dead follows a group of college friends as they head to the year’s biggest music festival. When they get a killer deal on an Airbnb, they waste little time celebrating their good fortune. Their weekend of partying quickly turns into a nightmare as members of the group are murdered one by one. When they realize that each of these horrific deaths corresponds to one of the seven sins, it’s only a matter of time before their number is up.”
Lead by Jade Pettyjohn (Little Fires Everywhere) and JoJo Siwa (The J Team, 71M+ followers on social media), the young, dynamic cast includes Jennifer Ens, Ali Fumiko Whitney, Justin Derickson, Julian Haig, Cardi Wong, Jack Doupe-Smith and Michaella Russell.
Josh Sims and Jessica Sarah Flaum wrote the script.
All My Friends Are Dead is produced by John Baldecchi, Kirk Shaw, and Stephanie Rennie, with Dominic Ianno, Sarah Donnelly, Jason Resnick, Suraj Gohill and Dan Rubin executive producing alongside Cinedigm’s Yolanda Macias, Brad Miska, and Brandon Hill.  Cinedigm holds North American rights.  The film is fully financed by Banc of California and Budding Equity, among others.
Scream has revitalized the ‘90s slasher and All My Friends Are Dead delivers all the gory fun of those classic films with modern flair” said Brad Miska, Managing Director of Bloody Disgusting/Cinedigm. “It’s going to deliver all of the gory goods that horror fans expect to see when Marcus Dunstan gets behind the camera.”
“This is a landmark moment for the highly-anticipated Roundtable and Cinedigm collaboration, as All My Friends Are Dead is the debut thriller that launched this exciting partnership,” adds Sarah Donnelly, Roundtable’s Head of Production. “Production in Vancouver is going beautifully, thanks to the skilled work of producers Kirk and Stephanie, the dedicated local crew, and the incredibly creative direction of Marcus Dunstan. Fans of the genre are not going to want to miss this one.”
Film Mode Entertainment is presenting the film to buyers in Cannes for the first time and will be showing a special presentation on the film. Film Mode Entertainment also has enormous interest in All My Friends Are Dead with deals already closed in Germany and Benelux – Splendid, UK – Bohemia, Middle East – Falcon, Poland – Forum Film, Portugal – Nos Lusomundo, Philippines – Pioneer, Malaysia and Thailand – Film Frame, and Bangladesh – Jamuna Group. FME is currently fielding offers from additional territories.
