Beckinsale as Barbarella

Posted by Michael Pinto on Apr 18, 2007 in Cinema, Comic Books |


Everyone thinks of the Jane Fonda film when they first hear Barbarella, but for me the name always reminds me of the French comic books which have held up better over time. I just found out that it’s now looking like Kate Beckinsale has been cast as for the lead role in the remake of Barbarella, which would be a pretty good choice.

If this new film is good or bad will ride on the script and then the director, but I think Beckinsale has a good shot at making the role her own as long as they try to do something new (i.e. by going back to comic books rather than the film).

My favorite film with Beckinsale is Haunted from 1995, which i think is an under rated gem of a film, and one of the best haunted house movies that I’ve watched in a long time.

Update: Sorry folks! This turned out to be a rumor…
