"Barbarella" to be Remade without Robert Rodriguez

Posted: May 27th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Barbarella" to be Remade without Robert RodriguezSubmit Comment
It seems like both Robert Rodriguez and Universal Pictures have been very eager to make a remake of "Barbarella," but nothing has been going right.

First Universal abandoned the project, because they didn't feel that Rodriguez's girlfriend Rose McGowan (Grindhouse) is a big enough name to carry a big Hollywood film. Plus, the budget escalated to double from what the studio originally planned.

After more negotiations, Universal agreed to a slightly higher budget as long as the film would be shot in Germany, due to tax breaks. Rodriguez did not want to be away from his family, so decided to drop "Barbarella" altogether.

Now, Moviehole is reporting that Universal and producer Dino De Laurentiis are still pursuing the project without Rodriguez. "[They're] meeting with writers as we speak." said the source. "It's far from dead."

For any of you at Universal Dino and all thee above. Please make this serious film and not some cheap campy stupid load. Back then these films expressed the campy because of the timeline. But now, such things like Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon can be made without camp and real story and real effects what happened to the true sci-fi? Sci-fi with horror and action and comedy. Well at least comedy as much as some great tongue and cheek lines but nothing stupid like slapstick. Anyway just don't screw this up I am a fan of the original and well its still awesome but cmapy as hell.

It'll have to be campy- no girl would normally expose skin when in danger- they're not going arthouse with 'Barbarella' trust me

I just dont see how a campy tit flick is going to bring in the crowds...I mean it isnt the 60's anymore. We can get tits on cable...an adventure film centred around gratuitous tit shots is something we can get on SciFi anytime of the night- it'll bomb no matter who makes it or stars in it. Catwoman is proof that scantily clad hottest FHM women surrounded by special effects and cheesiness simply does not work.
