At Cannes last week doing press for “Only God Forgives,” filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn was asked about how the TV series adaptation of the comic “Barbarella” was progressing.
Refn said: “We are just writing it still. I kind of went back to the original comic, and really began to close my eyes and fantasize about women in outer space and it looked pretty good.”
As for an idea as to who might take on the role made famous by a zero gravity Jane Fonda? He says: “No, I haven’t started casting yet.”
