The ‘She-devil with a sword- last seen on out screens as Brigitte Nielsen in Richard Fleischer’s shonky in out multiplexes as soon as we thought. Set to be directed by Douglas Aarniokoski and star Rose McGowan, with Robert Rodriguez producing, the project is now on hiatus.
“Because of certain issues and the economy, we had to change our plan a bit,” admits executive producer Joe Gatta, who’s also producing the Conan reboot.”It’s frustrating because we thought we’d make the movie last year, before Conan.”
Gatta is still confident Red Sonja will go before cameras in 2010, and he can confirm this will be an origin stoy that ignores Fleisher’s shaky stub at the flame-haired warrioress and goes straight to the source: Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith’s comic-book character, despite the fact that she started out as a Conan comic-book spin-off.
Gatta is confident of the character’s stansalone appeal. “She’s beautiful and sexy, and she kicks ass! Although you have to be really careful so it’s not campy. You want to make it real. Make her convicingly tough. And I think we have a script that’s cracked it.”
DJ EXPECTED: Late 2010 TBC
Seems a shame but understandable, I can only sum up the bright side of this in three words
Meet Jane Jetson :laugh: :biggrin:
To whom it may concern. If you’d like to support Rose’s Boston Brigade, there is a contest going on where you can vote in support of it so it can win a grant.
