Beckinsale Slips Into Barbarella?

Kate Beckinsale is tipped to slip on (or rather off) the skimpy outfits of sex kitten/galactic heroinne “Barbarella”.

The Daily Express indicates the 34-year-old “Underworld” actress is among the frontrunners for the role.

Beckinsale is also not averse to wearing the sort of skin-tight sexy costumes Fonda did in the original movie.

Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are penning the script, no director has yet been announced.
