No matter how much we may want him to go away, Arnold Schwarzenegger just keeps saying, "I'll be back" … this time, Schwarzenegger is returning to the big screen in a remake of one of his signature roles, Conan the Barbarian.

The actor and former California governor took a break from promoting his recent autobiography to chat with French website, to whom he confirmed that he is planning to star in a reboot of the Conan movie series, which included 1982's Conan the Barbarian and 1984's Conan the Destroyer.

"We've already had discussions about this, because it's a project that is particularly dear to me," Schwarzenegger told (via Contact "I must first shoot Ten with David Ayer, but then we're going to focus on Conan. It remains to be seen who will direct and if John Milius will write the script."

Conan was already remade last year, in a movie that starred Games of Thrones actor Jason Momoa.

Schwarzenegger, whose book Total Recall details his movie career, his time in the governor's office and the downfall of his marriage to Maria Shriver after she found out he had fathered a child with the family housekeeper, reportedly wants to remake or make sequels to several of his past film projects.

In various interviews he has talked about revisiting Twins, True Lies and the Terminator franchise, and reports he and Fast Five director Justin Lin are collaborating on a fifth Terminator flick.
