Skyfall Writers Join Refn for Barbarella Series

Posted January 29, 2013 09:29 PM by Webmaster

Last year, Gaumont International Television, the Los Angeles based arm of the French studio, and Martha De Laurentiis announced that they have teamed up to bring the iconic Barbarella to the small screen. Earlier today, Gaumont revealed that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the writers of the last five Bond films, have also joined the project.

Acclaimed Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Valhalla Rising) will direct and executive-produce the TV series with De Laurentiis.

De Laurentiis and Gaumont are also working together on the NBC series Hannibal.

Note: Roger Vadim's Barbarella (1968), starring Jane Fonda and David Hemmings, is already available on Blu-ray in the United States, courtesy of Paramount Pictures. See our listing and review here.

That's that sumbitch who directed "Drive"? One of the worst movies of recent memory. Somebody should Drive a stake through his fucking head for that abominable turd. And it really sucks that he was chosen for this otherwise interesting project. So, strike one.
Now... if there's naked chicks in it - cable, right? - then I'll give it a look.

@CandyStalker Pfft. As if. It's actually one of the best IMO. Even if you didn't like it it's not nearly as bad as other crap that's come out. Look at this past weekend. Three stinkers. Awful harsh considering the film is critically acclaimed.

The film was fun due to it's, unintentional campiness. Doubt the series could hope to match this, especially if they are trying to do so on purpose.

@CandyStalker - I'm a big fan of Drive but I like your style there buddy. Got a good laugh out of your comments myself. Unfortunately expressed dislike/having a sense of humor/having any interesting discussion at all seems to be mostly frowned upon in the comments sections around here.

@CandyStalker: Between you and Debbie Downer, I can't tell which one of you needs anger meds the most, man! However, on a lighter note, you're both as funny as shit! You should get a comedian gig hooked up. I believe it's your calling!

Personally, I didn't find "Drive" to be as big a deal as everybody else seemed to, but I did like the film. I've seen much, much worse.

Case in point:

"Birdemic - Shock and Terror"
"From Justin to Kelly"
etc., etc., etc.

I do not know about for TV. but as a movie maybe. and I would say to play her how about that Girl Married to Rapper Ice T .. Miss Coco. she kinda looks like Barbarella. IMO

This whole project confuses me. On one hand, I think Refn is the best director currently working and has been for a few years now. But I HATE Barbarella. But he'll probably make it amazing. But I'd much rather he be working on a film, not a TV show. But maybe he'll do something crazy and interesting with TV!

Like I said, I'm very confused by this.
