Barbarella is one of those projects like Ghostbusters 3 and the remake of Logan’s Run. You keep hearing about it all the time, but it never comes to pass. Talk of a Barbarella remake first surfaced at the beginning of the millennium, with Drew Barrymoore slated to play the title role. (In addition, Rose McGowan almost played Barbarella with her then boyfriend Robert Rodriguez slated to direct.)
There’s two famous sci-fi properties that Hollywood has been trying to remake for well over a decade now: Barbarella and Logan’s Run. While the original Barbarella didn’t have much of a story, it could be interesting to see what a modern day interpretation could look like. Ditto Logan’s Run.

As we recently reported, Barbarella, the late 60's sci fi classic starring Jane Fonda, is finally seeing a Blu-Ray release.
