Fresh off the financial disappointment of Grindhouse (read that review) Robert Rodriguez has decided to team with producer Dano De Laurentiis to make a new film version of Barbarella.  The 1968 sexscapade starred Jane Fonda in the title role as the sci-fi/comic book siren which was taken from the French comic book by Jean-Cluaude Forest.

Rodriguez was anxious to get his hand on the character, “I love this iconic character and all that she represents, and I’m truly excited by the challenge of inviting a new audience into her universe.”  No word yet on who will fill Fonda’s, um…shoes, but early gossip seems to like Rose McGowan in to title role.  You’ll know more when we do!
