Barbarella Coming to the Small Screen
If there is one comic book adaptation you may not have seen coming, it was probably Barbarella. Well, maybe you did see it coming if you were following the recent intentions of a number of filmmakers/actresses to reboot the 1968 film, starring Jane Fonda.
Well, with plans for a feature film behind them, director Nicholas Refn (Drive ) and executive producer Martha De Laurentiis are putting together plans for a television series, based on the original french comics.
The show will be produced by Gaumont International Television, who are also producing NBC’s newly announce drama Hannibal (based on the famous character from Silence of the Lambs). Julien Forest and Jean-Marc Lofficier will co-executive produce.
