It seems like we get news like this ever so often about an older iconic character like Flash Gordon, Red Sonja, or Barbarella and how they will be returning soon. Most of those stories lead nowhere, but we get the feeling with the talent attached to this it will last.
According to Deadline, Gaumont International Television and producer Martha De Laurentiis are trying to get a Barbarella TV series started up soon. Gaumont International Television is already hard at work on the upcoming Hannibal TV series. The other talent involved is none other than Drive director Nicolas Refn.
Laurentiis will executive produce the series along with Refn, who will also direct. No word yet on a planned network or start date but keep an eye open here for more news.
