Rodriguez-arella!

05.21.2007
Surprise! Robert Rodriguez is following up the creatively inspired financial flop GRINDHOUSE by upgrading the cheeky 1968 sci-fi/erotica BARBARELLA.

Veteran producer Dino De Laurentiis has brought Rodriguez on board, virtually guaranteeing the 2008 release for Universal's new adventures of the oft-disrobing intergalactic agent, previously played by a frisky Jane Fonda. HANNIBAL RISING helmer Peter Webber had once been rumored for the director's chair.

Rodriguez proclaims "I love this iconic character and all that she represents." He's now working with CASINO ROYALE scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade on the update, which has been described as a "female James Bond in space".

It's not known if Rodriguez will manage to fit in SIN CITY 2 (or the MACHETE spinoff, for that matter) before shooting intentional kitsch with the saucy space vixen. In the meantime we're left to wonder who might be wearing/shedding Barbarella's skintight attire in the new flick -- one of RR's past sexy movie seņoritas, perhaps?
Extra Tidbit: Rodriguez had also recently been circling THE JETSONS and LAND OF THE LOST remakes.
