BARBARELLA Series Lands At Amazon

BARBARELLA Series Lands At Amazon

Director Nicolas Winding Refn and the writing team behind Skyfall are putting their collective talents together to create a Barbarella series. Deadline reports that the project has landed at Amazon Studios.

Jean-Claude Forest's Barbarella comic book spawned the 1968 science fiction film of the same name that starred Jane Fonda. It was a campy, sex-laden, psychedelic romp that still has its fair share of fans to this day. In early 2013, it was announced that director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives) and the writing team of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Skyfall) were working on a contemporary reboot of the series and now Deadline reports that the project has found a home at Amazon Studios. Deadline also reports that Refn was initially going to direct the pilot but is now only serving as an executive producer. Now the series need to find a showrunner and cast its lead. Any suggestions for what actress in today's Hollywood could match the vigor and sex-appeal of 60's Jane Fonda?
