John Milius is a screenwriter and director who came to prominence in the 1970s, when he was associated with Francis Ford Coppola and the pre-Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) George Lucas. He has since been the creative mind behind epics such as Dirty Harry, Apocalypse Now and Clear and Present Danger.

In 2005 John Milius was supposed to write and direct King Conan: Crown of Iron but unfortunately the film was never made. Rest assured, Schwarzenegger’s comments reaffirms Milius’ involvement and that this highly anticipated film is definitely in production.

Schwarzenegger also took the time to give his fans some body building advice while he had time to spare. One Reddit user asked, “what kind of workout does a cybernetic organism enjoy?”
