New Barbarella Already Has Her Spaceship

Illustration for article titled New Barbarella Already Has Her Spaceship

Stop listening to those rumors that Robert Rodriguez's Barbarella remake is failing to achieve escape velocity. Rose McGowan, who's set to step into Jane Fonda's go-go boots, says the movie is much further along than you realize. Not only is she signed up, but a lot of the pre-production work is done, including the costumes and a lot of the sets — including part of Barbarella's spaceship. "I've got part of a spaceship built for me!" she exults. (Dear readers: please send us pics of those sets. Thanks.) The only wrinkle: Barbarella wouldn't be able to finish shooting by June, when the actors' strike is supposed to start. Image by Z. Tomaszewski/WENN. [MTV Movies]
