Those who liked the 1968 sexy space flick Barbarella starring Jane Fonda may either jump up and down in joy, or anger on the announcement that a remake of the film is in the works.
Joe Gazzam is writing the script, with Robert Luketic signed to direct.
“Barbarella” centers on a female mercenary who roams the universe of a distant future, undertaking missions that require fearlessness, ingenuity and sensuality. The character debuted in 1962 in a French graphic magazine written and illustrated by Jean-Claude Forest and was known for her sexual escapades. There also was a musical produced in 2004.
Instead of being a campy adventure, the updated Barbarella is going to focus on more action.
