Whatever happened to Rodrigez's Red Sonja?

I think it was last summer Robert Rodrigez announced at ComicCon his next project as RED SONJA starring his girlfriend Rose McGowen.

Since then, I have heard nothing about the project. Lots of talk about Sin City 2 and Predator and other proposed movie projects, but no Red Sonja.

Anyone know what happened? Is this project dead???

Re: Whatever happened to Rodrigez's Red Sonja?

Imdb.com says that it's in pre-production, to be released in 2010.

But the director is someone named Douglas Aarniokoski.

Just as an aside--in a recent CNN interview, Arnold Schwarzenegger listed the 1985 Red Sonja as one of the worst movies he ever made, along with Hercules in New York.

He also joked that he terrorizes Democrats in the state assembly by threatening to force them to watch Red Sonja, over and over again, unless they give him what he wants.

I don't think Rodriguez was ever planning to direct RED SONJA, just produce it.

Universal pulled the plug on Rodriguez's version of Barbarella because of budget concerns. Robert Luketic is now attached to direct, and Dino De Laurentiis's company is shopping it around to studios.

As long as we get Rose McGowan in a chainmail bikini, I don't care of Rodriguez produces, directs, or manages Craft Services.

Anyone else notice Rodrigez takes his sweet time with the projects?

I hope it's dead. Rose McGowan as Red Sonja makes as much sense as Shia LeBoeuf as Conan. Don't anyone from Hollywood take that as encouragement.

If he wants to put his girlfriend in a movie, pick on something like Barbarella that I don't give a flying frak about.

Let's face it people. Whether you like it or not, Katee Sackhoff owns Sonja's chain mail bikini. Let's just cast her in the role, dye her hair red, and get the frak on with it.

He also joked that he terrorizes Democrats in the state assembly by threatening to force them to watch Red Sonja, over and over again, unless they give him what he wants.
Well that should balance the budget in no time!

^^ Rose looks much more like Red Sonja than Katee Sackhoff at least in the comics I've seen in passing.

Fair enough, but the snarly attitude that Katee usually exudes seems different to me than RS but I've never really read them so much as glanced over them so maybe it does fit the character.

I'd much rather they cast Katee because I'm sick of Hollywood asking me to buy skinny, frail-looking little bitches beating the shit out of people six times their size; it's not fun anymore, it's just lame.

Christina Hendricks should play Red Sonja.

Though Sackhoff isn't exactly Hulk Hogan herself.

Rachel Nichols would make a good Red Sonja, too.
