Robert Luketic Taking on Barbarella

By ON

Entertainment Weekly reports that director Robert Luketic (Monster-in-Law, Legally Blonde) is working with Dino De Laurentiis’ company to develop an update of Barbarella at a new studio. A previous version of the project at Universal had Robert Rodriguez attached to direct, with Rose McGowan starring.

“It will be a big intergalactic adventure with a sexy twist,” a source close to the project told the magazine.

“Barbarella” made her debut in 1962 in a French graphic magazine written and illustrated by Jean-Claude Forest, and her adventures have been published around the world. The first film version, starring Jane Fonda produced by De Laurentiis, was released in 1968.
