Rodriguez and McGowan Team for Red Sonja

June 26, 2008


According to USA Today, real-life couple director Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan are teaming up to bring Red Sonja back to theaters.

Rodriguez will produce a new big-screen adventure featuring the flame-haired comic-book vixen, to be played by McGowan, for a release in 2010.

"When they first came to me with it, I thought it was funny," McGowan told the newspaper. "I do have a body made for sitting on a veranda with mint juleps and a parasol. I don't know why I always have to save the planet."

Rodriguez considers her a perfect fit as the mighty, and mighty voluptuous, avenger. "Rose is a pistol. She's whip-smart, has attitude to burn, is sexy, extremely strong, yet has a vulnerable side that would surprise her closest friends. That description also fits Red Sonja."

Filming will start in October. Longtime Rodriguez associate Douglas Aarniokoski will direct.

Yeah but... Rose McGowan?

I dunno...

Can't we just get Frank Cho to animate a hot chick slaying baddies for an hour and a half?

This sounds promising, plus, with Rob Zombie doing the Conan movie and Rob and Robert being such good friends could lead to a Conan/Red Sonja film. Rodriguez has shown in the past that he can handle comic book movies so I expect big things. Plus Rose is smoking hot.

I guess Rodriguez directing McGowan in Barbarella fell through so now he's trying to put her into Red Sonja.
I don't think she fits the role, but anything would be better than the original.

Still, I think Rodriguez is a terrible director.

Megan Fox Offered Red Sonja?
Source: Pajiba April 5, 2010

Pajiba reports that Nu Image/Millennium Films is changing directions on its Red Sonja update. The company announced in June of 2008 that Rose McGowan would star in the title role and that the film would be directed by Douglas Aarniokoski and produced by Robert Rodriguez.

Then last month, McGowan landed a role in Conan, also from Nu Image/Millennium Films, but not as Red Sonja leading to speculation that she was no longer on board. McGowan instead will play "an evil half-human/half-witch."

In addition to McGowan, Aarniokoski is apparently off the project as well and they are looking for another writer to take a pass at David N. White's script.

Pajiba says that an offer has now been made to "Transformers" star Megan Fox to play the mythical flame-haired comic-book vixen with a sword. Will she take the role? We'll have to wait and see.

In June '08, the project was described as follows:

In her return we find Red Sonja, a young girl risen from the ashes of tragedy to become the most feared woman warrior of all time. The mythical red-head blindly seeks vengeance on those who destroyed her family. In her path of destruction she discovers a larger purpose for her unearthly powers: to save all Hyrkania from the villainous Kulan Gath.
