McGowan In Barbarella Remake?

JoBlo reports that Director Robert Rodriguez’s girlfriend and “Planet Terror” star Rose McGowan is being used for FX test footage of the “Barbarella” remake.

Whether that means she’ll play the famous intergalactic heroine is unsure. At last report, Kate Beckinsale was the front runner to take on the role made famous by Jane Fonda in the 60’s psychedlic film adaptation.

The project, which will be far more faithful to the original comic, is scheduled to start principal photography before year’s end.
