Robert Rodriguez On “Red Sonja” Delay

Robert Rodriguez explains that it was legal and financing issues more than anything that caused the “Red Sonja” film adaptation to become stuck in development hell.

Speaking with MTV News at the SXSW Film Festival, Rodriguez says “If I kept the project myself, we could’ve just made it, but it belonged to another company that had financing problems… They had to wait until they made a couple of other movies first.”

In fact one of those movies has just begun production, Rodriguez saying “They’re actually waiting until they make the Conan movie before they do that – to see how that works for them.”
