How has this not been remade before? Released in 1968, and starring Jane Fonda, Barbarella (based on a graphic novel of the same name) was a movie set “In the far future,”where “a highly sexual woman is tasked with finding and stopping the evil Durand-Durand. Along the way she encounters various unusual people.”
Which sounds like the plot of many paranormal/urban fantasies, doesn’t it?
Now Martha Laurentiis (wife of Dino, who produced the original film) and Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn are teaming up to make a TV series based on the “highly sexual” Barbarella.
Check out the title sequence alone for just how crazy this new series might be!
