It’s been a while since we’ve heard any progress on Robert Rodriguez‘s remake of Red Sonja. The comic book character was previously played by Brigitte Nielson, with actress Rose McGowan set to take over the role. Thanks to the creepy networking device that is Twitter, McGowan has cleared the air once and for all on whether or not she’ll bring the red haired vixen back to the big screen.
There must have been a recent development in terms of the Red Sonja‘s production because today McGowan left a somber message on her Twitter page regarding the film’s future.
Just this once i’ll address questions about Red Sonja&others;i was meant to do in ’08. Major personal &private reasons I pulled out. Starting 2 want to work again. Sometimes real life fucking sucks. That’s all. God bless us survivors.
So, I’m going to take that as a “no” for her starring in the film? It sounds like something went south of the border in the filmmaking process. At Comic-Con ’08, there were a lot of Red Sonja promotional posters and T-Shirts flying left in right, but that was obviously a front. It’s been over a year and they haven’t shot one scene. McGowan sounds like she’s over it, and Rodriguez hasn’t spoken about it as of late. Is it safe to say it’s a done deal?
Do you think they should remake Red Sonja?
