Will a “big budget” remake of Barbarella go ahead?

4 Jun

200906041225.jpg Australian filmmaker Robert Luketic may be in the director’s chair if a “big budget” remake of Barbarella goes ahead. The project has also been linked to producer Dino De Laurentiis, in which case a “big intergalactic adventure with a sexy twist” is quite on the cards.

Luketic has good work in his portfolio, including 21, Legally Blonde and Monster-in-Law. Luketic is currently in production on the action-comedy Five Killers which stars Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher.

The original Barbarella film starred Jane Fonda (photo) and is a long-running cult classic in just about every list of great movies. A previous project that was to include Rose McGowan fell by the wayside, so it will be interesting to see who, what and when develops with this one.
