Barbarella remake ‘top priority’

Legendary producer Dino DeLaurentiis has confirmed the movie is his number one priority, after director Robert Rodriguez cancelled plans to rework the film with his girlfriend Rose McGowan in the starring role.

Legally Blonde movie maker Robert Luketic is now in the hot seat, and Lorenze De Maio, the boss of De Laurentiis’ production company, reveals stars like Lindsay Lohan, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood are vying to play the sexually adventurous space traveller.

De Maio tells Daily Variety, “Every young actress in town is interested in playing that Barbarella part.”
