It's been about a year since we've heard from the proposed 'Barbarella' TV series under ‘Skyfall‘ writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, but at long last the project may have finally gotten off the ground. New reports have emerged that an adaptation of the iconic 1968 Jane Fonda character will land at Amazon Studios on a fast track toward pilot production.
Many modern audiences wouldn't necessarily remember the name 'Barbarella,' perhaps even confusing her with Pamela Anderson's ill-fated action heroine 'Barb Wire' (not that we know from experience), but the character made famous by Jane Fonda is poised to return in a big way. New reports suggest that universally acclaimed 'Skyfall' writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have signed on to develop a new TV series based on the classic heroine, but will the new 'Barbarella' prove a little too retro for modern audiences? New details inside!
Iconic character 'Barbarella' is coming back, but this time she's headed to the small screen with a big name attached: Nicolas Winding Refn, director of last year's fantastic 'Drive,' is attached to direct and produce a new series.
Soon you'll be able to watch a young and incredibly sexy Jane Fonda strip in zero gravity in all her high-definition glory, as the cult '60s classic 'Barbarella' is finally coming to Blu-ray this summer.
