Rose McGowen Putting on the Chain-Mail Playing Red Sonja
Announced yesterday at San Diego’s Comic-Con International, Nu Image / Millennium will remake Marvel’s Red Sonja with Rose McGowan in the title role, and her boyfriend Robert Rodriguez producing.
Red Sonja will be directed by Douglas Aarniokoski from David White’s script. Filming is set to begin in October.
Red Sonja is based on a character created by Robert E. Howard in the short story “Shadow of a Vulture” and adapted into Conan’s Hyborian age in Conan the Barbarian #23 by Roy Thomas.
The 1985 version of Red Sonja starred Brigitte Neilsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
