Rose is Barbarella

When it was announced that Robert Rodriguez would direct a remake of BARBARELLA, it was speculated (and essentially confirmed right here at JoBlo) that his GRINDHOUSE warrior-stripper and new squeeze Rose McGowan would portray the sex-seeking intergalactic adventuress of the title.

In the time since, rumors spread that the studio had issues with both the ballooning budget and McGowan as the lower-wattage star, but the actress has gone Snuffy the Fire Dog on that flaming baloney. As she tells MTV, she's still unequivocally slipping into the skintight suit: "Oftentimes these things have basis in truth but this didn’t. I have contracts to prove it."

She also says that things are moving along nicely: "Half of the sets have been built. The costumes are done." But a potential actors strike (not again!) in June has kept things from getting to the shooting stage. See what else she has to say on the project RIGHT HERE .

The cheeky 1968 erotic sci-fi flick starred Jane Fonda as a saucy space vixen dispatched to find a mad scientist, which involved getting naked at regular intervals along the way.
