Robert Rodriguez to Produce "Red Sonja"

by Billy Fisher

At times I think that certian movies should not be remade.  This one I am certianly on the fence with.  Last night while watching G4 I was shocked to see in their breaking news bar they posted that RR was producing a remake of the 1985 action film "Red Sonja".  What was an even bigger shock was that they said that Rose McGowan was going to play the title role. 

In retrospect, I figure that I was putting too much thought into it.  So this morning, the first thing I did was surf the web and see if this was true.  Yes my friends, it is true.  Miss McGowan is bringing Sonja, originally played by Brigitte Nielson, back to the big screen.  Apparently,  there has been much speculation on who would take on the title role.  Stars like Charlize Theron, Milla Jovovich, Megan Fox and Rebecca Mader have all been blogged as the mighty warrior.

Many others have blogged that RR would be taking the helm of this project.  This is not true, he is taking a producers role on this one.  His trusted second chair Douglas Aarinokoski is taking the helm of this ship, slated to hit the theaters in 2010.

I am not really expecting an epic that will withstand the test of time.  I am, however, expecting a great action flick.  With RR involved, even in the producer capacity, this bound to keep our attention. 

I will keep you fellow surfers updated as new developments come available.  Until then, let me know what you think.

McMurphy Out!
