Two promotional posters for the movie were released during the Comic Con in 2008. Both featured Rose McGowan, dressed as Red Sonja with fierce red hair. On one she was licking blood from a sword and on the other she was kneeling on a pile of skulls with red plots flying around her. Both posters promoted the movie to be released in 2009. It was never released that year.
In 2009, this reboot of the original film was announced. Robert Rodriguez was announced to direct and Rose McGowan was announced to star as Red Sonja, succeeding Brigitte Nielsen in the role. But due to the 2011 reboot of "Conan the Barbarian" bombing at the Box Office, production on the reboot was abandoned and both Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan backed out of the project. As of 2015, the reboot is in development hell.
