James Bond Writers Will Pen New Barbarella Series

January 29, 2013


Way back in June, we reported that a new take on Barbarella was being conceived for television, but there's been no mention of the project since then. Today, Deadline is reporting that Skyfall writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who have co-written the last five James Bond films, will write the series.

Martha De Laurentiis will executive produce the project under her Gaumont International Television company. Drive director Nicolas Refn is set to direct the series. There is no word yet on when or where this updated Barbarella will air, but check back here for more updates.

This new series will reportedly take its inspiration from the original comic book created by Jean-Claude Forest instead of the 1968 film starring Jane Fonda.
