But wait... it gets better. They're not scrapping the idea of remaking BARBARELLA altogether. No, the studios were worried that McGowan didn't have enough star power to carry the film and after GRINDHOUSE was graded a "box office bomb" last year, they were looking for someone with a bigger name.
Guess. Really, guess. They want Jessica Alba. OMFG. As if Rose weren't badly suited enough to play the role that made Jane Fonda's credit-covered bewbs a sensation, they want to go with the one chick that will GUARANTEE that the remake will bomb. Seriously, Alba might be a well known name, but it's not like the bitch can open anything. GRINDHOUSE was only ONE misstep. Alba's had AWAKE, THE EYE, THE LOVE GURU, MEET BILL (which didn't even get a theatrical release)... do I really need to go on? This information is making me want to slit my wrists.
