Next week, actress Rose McGowan will be appearing on the big screen as Marique, a beautiful and deadly witch in director Marcus Nispel’s Conan: The Barbarian. However, not too long ago, McGowan was set to headline her own swords-and-sandals epic spinning out of the world of Conan as the title character in Robert Rodriguez’s Red Sonja. Rodriguez has said in the past that the movie never happened because of rights and financing issues, but McGowan revealed in a recent interview in support of Conan: The Barbarian that “massive nerve damage” in her arm ultimately prevented her from playing the “She-Devil with a Sword.”

I had three surgeries on [my elbow] and they took part of my bone out. I was paralyzed, except for the ends of my fingers. And, over the course of a year, it got progressively worse. It was just massive nerve damage. So, if I hurt it again, there’s nothing more they can do. So, something’s that really sword-heavy, the odds of me getting hurt are pretty strong. I’ll still do battle stuff. I love doing stunts, it’s my favorite thing. I always get hurt, but I have a blast. But, I need to not tip the scales because paralysis isn’t really worth it. Not worth the movie… It would have been dope. Honestly, I would have killed it. It is a pity.

She may be almost entirely unrecognizable, but yes, that is Rose McGowan rocking the porcelain skin, minimal leather outfit and, well, receding hairline in the trailer for Conan the Barbarian. She stars as the evil Marique, a powerful sorceress and the daughter of the ruthless Khalar Zym (Stephen Lang), Conan’s (Jason Momoa) archenemy.

With the film’s August 19th release on the horizon, McGowan hit San Diego Comic-Con to help spread the word. She dishes on all of the details including what it took to turn her into the character we see on screen, Marique’s weapon of choice, her daddy issues, as well as a moment between her and Lang that had to be cut from the film, for the fear of pushing a testy issue too far.

Before wrapping up, we revisit the much-discussed possibility of her playing Red Sonja on the big screen. The outlook’s been grim for quite a while and now McGowan 100% confirms it: She will not play Red Sonja. Hear all about that and, of course, McGowan’s experience working on Conan the Barbarian in the video interview below.

'Red Sonja'
Article written on April 6, 2010 by Riikkae-mail

There seems to be a massive amount of rumors around Red Sonja at the moment. Pajiba reports that Nu Image/Millennium Films is changing directions on the film. The company announced in June of 2008 that Rose McGowan would star in the title role and that the film would be directed by Douglas Aarniokoski and produced by Robert Rodriguez.

Then last month, McGowan landed a role in Conan, also from Nu Image/Millennium Films, but not as Red Sonja leading to speculation that she was no longer on board. McGowan instead will play “an evil half-human/half-witch.” In addition to McGowan, Aarniokoski is apparently off the project as well and they are looking for another writer to take a pass at David N. White’s script.

Pajiba also reports that Megan Fox has been offered the role of Red Sonja. However, Megan’s publicist tells Moviefone the report is “not true.”

Rose herself responded the following on her Twitter:

It’s fine. It was Conan or that RT @GossipGuy556677: @rosemcgowan Fans Waited For Her to Be Red Sonja Since 2008. & Now Megan Fox Come and Take the Role!!! thats so UNFAIR!!!

So it seems that Rose is off the Red Sonja project, which is very disappointing as us fans have been following and eagerly awaiting the project for years.

This update shall conclude our coverage of Red Sonja, unless there will be an official announcement in the future, reporting that the film is back in production with Rose McGowan on board.



'Red Sonja'

When the news broke this morning that actress Rose McGowan had joined the cast of Marcus Nispel’s upcoming Conan movie as “an evil half-human/half-witch,” one question seemed to be on the minds of fans: What about Red Sonja?

Originally tagged to play the female barbarian back in 2008, McGowan reported in August 2009 that Red Sonja had been delayed. The character was rumored to make a cameo in Conan, since she made her first appearance in Conan the Barbarian comics, but today’s casting news certainly makes such a cameo difficult — if not altogether impossible.

Fortunately, MTV News checked in with Red Sonja producer Robert Rodriguez during the recent South By Southwest Film Festival to find out where the project is at these days.
