HOLY CRAP! This isn't a joke! And Dino de Laurentis is producing!

edit: it's his next movie!
yeah, fuck Sin City, do a good movie instead!

Haha, it's just that I hate Sin City with a passion, but let's not go through this in this topic. ;)

I must say I don't really see Rose McGowan in that role.

What's a Babarella? I thought Robert was finishing "Machete" and Sin City 2? It's probably a fake rumor. . .or is it?

The original is great. I almost bought it last saturday but ran out of money...

Jjp is right. Bridget Fonda would be a decent choice. Not great but definitely the best I can think of.

Or, do something radical. Cast Kurt Russel as Barbarella :D

Maybe Marley Shelton?  ;D
Bridget is too old and seems to have retired (nothing in the last five years).
She is married to soundtrack star Danny Elfman and they have a son.

Soundtrack star Danny Elfman. I like that, good description.
We don't know his motivation, nor his love-affair. All we know is that he's a hired-assasin ready to kick some butt.

He's called:

The "BICYCLE GUY"

When justice is done, he goes on...

from bbc.co.uk

"The possibilities are limitless," said Rodriguez. "I love this iconic character and all that she represents."

Original producer Dino De Laurentiis is in charge of the remake, which is due to be released by Universal next year.
"Barbarella is the ultimate science-fiction adventure heroine - smart, strong and sexy," De Laurentiis said in a statement.
"In our vision, the future is female, and I can't wait to introduce Barbarella to a new generation of moviegoers."

Casino Royale screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are working on the script.
The original film was a box office flop but has since achieved cult status, constantly referred to in pop culture.
It was directed by Fonda's then-husband Roger Vadim and became infamous for the opening scene, where Fonda undresses in zero gravity. Kylie Minogue recreated the iconic sequence in the video for her 1994 single Put Yourself In My Place.

Barbarella first appeared in a French graphic magazine written and illustrated by Jean-Claude Forest in 1962, and her adventures have been published around the world.
De Laurentiis has secured the rights to the cartoon creation from Jean-Claude's son Julien.
The deal will also see the first two Barbarella books be reissued, along with the publication of material previously unreleased in English.

Quantity ain't better than quality. I hate it when filmmakers start making a slew of crappy movies, like "Shark Boy & Lava Girl" he even credited his kid for penning such an inept "family film" - leave that to Dreamworks numbnuts! That CGI using cowboy wannabe, he's like a Paul W.S. Anderson ver. 2.0 but without a super hot wife, which reduces him to a Paul Anderson ver 1.5

Off Topic. Barbarella is great, I can't beleive she left "The View" - that fat monster Rosie O'Donnel drove her away with her giant, fat twat! I still enjoy her interviews, very amusing.
