The 1968 cult classic movie Barbarella is being developed as a new TV series for Amazon Studios. The studio is currently seeking a showrunner, in anticipation of a pilot order.
Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Skyfall) wrote the pilot script based on Roger Vadim's movie, which starred Jane Fonda as a sexy astronaut who tries to stop a nefarious weapons inventor. The character was created by Jean-Claude Forest, which debuted in 1962 in the French publication V-Magazine. The comic strips were later published as a stand-alone graphic novel in 1964. No story details were given regarding this new adaptation.
Nicolas Winding Refn is attached to executive produce and will direct the pilot episode, with Martha De Laurentiis, the daughter of the late Barbarella producer Dino De Laurentiis, also executive producing. Gaumont International Television, which produces NBC's Hannibal and Netflix's Hemlock Grove, have been developing the project for a year and a half. »
