Barbarella Does It Again

Barbarella is an inter-gallactic sex symbol, a lover and a fighter, and she’s coming back to the big screen! Director Robert Rodriguez, who is known for being Quentin Tarantino’s boy crush and for stylized films like Sin City and Planet Terror, is now taking on the swinging ’60s space odyssey. And he’s going above and beyond to stick to the original — even behind the scenes. Rose McGowan, Rodriguez’s fiancee, has signed on to fill the go-go boots of Jane Fonda, whose husband Roger Vadim directed the original in ‘68. Although filming had been delayed due to the writers’ strike, hopefully the impending Screen Actors Guild strike won’t get in Barbarella’s way. But if there’s one thing we know about the Amazon woman, nothing and no one can stop her! [Media Morgue]
