Please note the following is from IGN.com:
"It's been a bit over a year since we reported that Universal had plans to reboot Conan the Barbarian with Arnold Schwarzenegger once again in the titular role. Set to be produced by Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan (The Fast and the Furious franchise and Wanted screenwriter), The Legend of Conan will follow what 1982's Conan the Barbarian established and disregard Conan the Destroyer and the 2011 Jason Momoa reboot. Malmberg runs Paradox Entertainment, which controls the rights to the Robert E. Howard character, and produced 2011 version.
IGN was able to sit down with Morgan at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour recently to talk about his upcoming series for FOX, Gang Related. During the course of our conversation, we touched on The Legend of Conan"
"IGN: You've also got Conan in development. How's that going?
Chris Morgan: It's going to be amazing. We have an incredible story, a great writer on it. Arnold is coming back in an amazing way. It's going to be our Unforgiven. It's going to be great, like genuinely great.
IGN: Can you talk about how the approach has evolved. When this was announced, the idea was that this would be a Conan that wasn't necessarily fighting any longer, but that he'd get drawn into a battle. Has there been any talk of bringing in an additional character to sort of take on the mantle?
Morgan: I don't want to give away plot, but Conan's Conan to me. Look, for my money, I don't think that the right way. I'm not interested in passing on the torch. It's Conan! It's Arnold Schwarzenegger. We're bringing him back for a reason. When I say Unforgiven, I mean it's a guy who has to come back, and I want him to play his age. I want him to be looking at the later years of his life and have to contemplate this horrific threat. Sitting down and walking through the story with [Schwarzenegger], he's amazing. It's one of the projects that I am incredibly excited about, because I know when you hear Conan and you hear certain things, like the instinct is "There was just a Conan movie and we know those Conan things" -- this is different, I'm telling you. I wouldn't do it if it wasn't perfectly fitting and built off that first movie and if it wasn't awesome, and it's awesome. It's a great character journey. People think it's just going to swords and hacking and effects. It is not. It is a character story. It's awesome.
Morgan: Look, I think Jason is a really good actor. I love him, especially in Game of Thrones -- holy s***, he's great! But it is what it is. That's the version they set out and did. The version that I am really interested in, the one that I went to Arnold with, and went to the studio with is, it's a different version, and it really is a take on...Conan the Barbarian, people can say what they want about it, I think it's actually a brilliant movie. I think the lack of dialogue in it...I think [John] Milius did such a good job with it, such a good job. There's a lesson about what it is to be a man and a warrior and "What is civilization in barbarism?" and "What do you believe in?" and lessons of life. I think there's so much in that movie that we are now going to be able to jump ahead and build on that foundation that they built, those types of lessons. I think it's going to be something really special and iconic and different than people expect.
IGN: Is he going to be contemplating the lamentation of his enemies' women?
Morgan: [Laughs] He will be contemplating on the Tree of Woe, yes! He will crush his enemies, see them driven before him, and hear the lamentations of their women, yes!
IGN: I know you guys have hired Andrea Berloff to write the script, but how soon do you think...
Morgan: Yes, she a great writer. She is finishing up a draft now, and then we'll know. But she's incredible. She has a gift for guys being guys, action and dialogue and elevated genre. We're lucky. We're really lucky to have her. She's amazing.
IGN: There were rumors of Paul Verhoeven expressing some interest in directing.
Morgan: I heard about the Verhoeven thing as well, and it's not -- yeah, we haven't had any discussions like that.
IGN: Do you have a fantasy director in mind [Malmberg had mentioned Peter Jackson] or are you actively in talks with people?
Morgan: Right now I think we're just kind of open. We're open to that. I am a "one hurtle at a time" guy. Here's a little story that I'll say, and I'm going to say this really wrong; it's from this book, and I hate to say that I don't remember the title, but it was a book about the war in Iraq. The story was centered around a bunch of soldiers, and they go into Iraq, and they're on this refueling mission. This airplane, when they stop to refuel, they sleep on a bladder of fuel that is 100,000 gallons, or I don't know how much -- a ton of fuel. Well this guy falls asleep, and he wakes up and they're being shot and shelled in midair, right? Everyone is jumping out of the plane, parachuting out. So he gets up, and he doesn't know what it is, and everyone's in a line, and it's panic -- bullets and all this stuff -- and he just gets in line, and he realizes he doesn't have a parachute on. He jumps out anyway, and he hits the ground ten feet later. What happened was, while they were refueling, some accidental thing happened, and an ammo cart went off. He thought he was flying when he went out, and his sergeant pulls him aside and goes, "What were you thinking? You were in line, you jumped out of an airplane, and you didn't have your parachute?" He goes, "One problem at a time, Sarge." He knew he had to get out of the exploding plane first. So that's that. So with this, I got delivered a great script, and if I get delivered a great script, then I go to a great director. If we get a great director or cast, like, one thing at a time. I can lock those things down. But I believe in it. I think it's going to be a great project.
Morgan: I mean, I'm definitely aware of it. This is going to sound weird, but it doesn't bother me. Good or bad or indifferent, I don't care, because whatever the perception is for Conan -- I love it, because we're going to exceed expectations. This is what I mean by that; if someone looks at that box office and goes, "Okay, so that box office wasn't great," I'm okay with that, because then they'll be like, "Do you think this can perform?" I never try to chase heat, and we're tastemakers. We tell people what's good. If I believe in it, then I'm going to go at it 100 percent. So if someone has a lowered expectation because of that, great! I love it, because I know the work that we're going to do, I know the work that he's going to do, and he's going to kill it. When people see it, if they have a lowered expectation, it's going to make us look so much better. By the way, I think he's going to do a great job with David Ayer's film. I think things are going to do very, very well for him." (Special note from Trevor: Chris Morgan is awesome)
"Post: Why are you just now trying out straight comedy?
Van Damme: I have always enjoyed comedy, [and] there have been elements of comedy in several of my past films. I guess the fact that I participated in something that was primarily a comedy was based on how much I liked the script and the fact that my character was a parody of an action guy. However, are you sure it was a comedy because my agent never told me that?
Were the other actors afraid of you on set?
Only when I was there.
There’s a lot of funny people in this movie, from Rob Huebel to Kristen Schaal. Did you ever break character because of their improv?
There were a lot of laughs on the set. It is normal to occasionally start laughing during a take.
You take on an angry wild tiger in the movie. Did you guys become friends?
We do dinner in Brentwood once in a while.
If you had to choose a way to die in the jungle, how would you go?
Old age — there are some really nice jungle bungalows on the market these days.
Whom would you want to be stranded in the jungle with?
I have been asked this before, but I still don’t understand who wants to strand me. Is this some type of conspiracy?
I stretch a lot, I always have.
Were you nervous to do it?
Appropriate safety precautions were taken, and we were very careful.
Has the ad opened up new opportunities for you?
Only time will tell.
What did you think of Chuck Norris’ response parody?
I was impressed — I never thought Chuck could do a split between planes.
Did you ever expect that your Volvo ad would become such a huge Internet sensation?
The ad was a lot of fun and really cool to participate in.
Do you have Enya on your iPod?
