Millennium Media is set to finance and produce “Red Sonja,” a new feature adaptation of “Conan” creator Robert E. Howard’s iconic heroine with the project being fast-tracked.
A writer will shortly be hired to adapt the character who was adapted into the Marvel comics of the 1970s. The property was previously adapted for the screen in 1985 with Brigitte Nielsen in the title role and Arnold Schwarzenegger co-starring.
The new version will be different, with fresh story ideas and characters. Avi Lerner, Joe Gatta, Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon will produce.
