John August Says Barbarella Starting Back Up

Sci Fi Wire spoke to screenwriter John August about the new Barbarella movie, to be based on the French comics.

Screenwriter John August, who wrote two Barbarella spec scripts for producer/star Drew Barrymore, told SCI FI Wire that the project is back on after a hiatus of two years. “I went through two drafts about two years ago, between the first Charlie’s [Angels] and the second Charlie’s,” August said in an interview. “I got busy, and then Drew got busy, and Laura Ziskin, the other producer, got busy. And we all went our separate ways. So we’re just now coming back together and figuring out what we have and what kind of movie we want to make.”
