According to the USA Today, Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan are once again teaming up to bring the metal bikini clad red haired she-devil with a swoard to the big screen.

“I was surprised when Rose brought me a script of Red Sonja that she liked,” Rodriguez says from his home base of Austin, where he is shooting Shorts, a family film with James Spader and Jon Cryer. “I found it very entertaining. Sonja was strong, smart, cunning — just about everything she’d have to be to survive.”

Thankfully, Rodriguez and McGowan are using material from the comics and from the works of Robert E. Howard, and are steering clear for the first Red Sonja movie.

Robert E. Howard…we might have something on that soon…

    I don’t know, Rose McGowan is hot and all, but is she really Red Sonja? I can see Jessica Biel.

    It really doesn’t matter. McGowan oozed sexiness as Cherry Darling, machine gun leg and all. I wish we’d have Jessica Biel in everything, but I heard she’s preggers with Justin Timberlake’s demon seed.

    Yes … I know far too much about Jessica Biel’s personal life.

    I have to agree. Rose McGowan, very pretty. Very, very pretty! But she’s not my idea of Red Sonja. I’m a female and noI’m not gay. anyways.. Someone more like Jessica Biel. i don’t think I would pick Jessica Biel myself. But someone more that type. More tough looking yet feminine of course. McGowan looks too delicate. what I really wish they’d do is a talent search for someone brand new for this part.

    Yeah yeah, another “I wanna be a hot, femanine, tough, elegant, bitch super-girl) movie/character. Why don’t they just do porn and get it over with. Let’s be real, a girl who’s super hot usually is built very slender and can’t kick anybody’s ass except a runway’s. This is more Hollywood cheese with great tits. I guess it sells to the idiots, but IT’S NOT REAL, FOLKS. It’s also not good to make young girls believe that you can be built like Rose McGowan and beat the sh*t out of 300 pound men. Very silly.
    BUT, If you have to choose someone for a role like this, why not an unknown hottie? McGowan is getting too old and her lips look like she’s in a wind tunnel. I don’t know what she did to them, but she looks like a fish that’s having trouble pronouncing words. Just use an unknown girl. Get a fresh face on those stale screens.
