Dino De Laurentis’ remake of the classic Jane Fonda sci-fi movie, Barbarella, has gotten its director in Peter Webber. He recently helmed Hannibal Rising. Dino also produced the original movie and described the new one as “Female James Bond in Space.” Shooting will take place at Morocco’s CLA studios.
Now that the script is being worked on and there’s a director, names are being dropped left and right. The name that keeps coming up the most is Sienna Miller. She’s apparently Dino’s first choice as the title role.
A source said, “Dino feels this is the right time for Barbarella to return and Sienna is the lead contender. She’s sexy but can act at the same time — much like Jane Fonda.”
Wasn’t Aeon Flux sort like a female James Bond in space/future? Give the role to Sienna! The movie’s gonna suck anyways might as well take her down with hit!
