Funding is already in place for a new Red Sonja
movie, following Wonder Woman's success...
The last time we saw Robert E Howard’s creation Red Sonja
on the big screen, it was in the midst of 1985’s movie, where the character was played by Brigitte Nielsen
. In that particular movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger
took top billing.
However, now comes the news that a new take on the character is heading to the big screen, and apparently heading there fast. Producer Avi Lerner
, who is overseeing this new version, concedes that Wonder Woman’s success is an influence here, and the funding is now in place for the new film from Millennium Media.
The hunt is now on for a screenwriter for the movie, one who will differentiate it from the 1985 version and have one eye on a franchise.Early days
yet, but we’ll keep you posted as we hear more…
