Rodriguez, McGowan Join Sonja Remake

Real-life husband and wife team Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan are getting involved in the “Red Sonja” remake reports USA Today.

Millennium Films previously announced plans to revive the classic Robert E. Howard-created sword and sorcery epic with David N. White attached to pen the script.

Rodriguez now confirms he’ll produce the new film which is scheduled for a 2010 release. Douglas Aarniokoski will helm the feature which is scheduled to commence shooting in October.

Rodriguez and McGowan were remain attached to a remake of “Barbarella” but that project remains in limbo due to the strikes.
