The Hollywood tough guy recently confirmed plans to step back into his breakthrough role in a new film which will continue the story he started in 1982's Conan the Barbarian and 1984 sequel Conan the Destroyer.
However, Schwarzenegger admits his biggest battle was to get studio bosses to consider his plan.
He tells CNN.com, "They're seriously going to put it back on track. I fought for that for years for them to be serious about it and make it an 'A' movie, not just a movie where people get hacked up and all this, but a great story with a great director.
"And they are now serious about it and so I'm looking forward to the script being finished so we can prep the movie and start shooting."
The new film will reportedly be titled The Legend of Conan. It comes after 2011 film Conan the Barbarian, a new adventure based on the mythical character featuring Jason Momoa in the title role.
