Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Barbarella' Series Surfaces at Amazon Studios
News broke back in June 2012 that "Drive" filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn was executive producing a television series adaptation of the 1968 cult film "Barbarella," based on the French comic strip by Jean-Claude Forest and starring Jane Fonda as a sort of intergalactic sex kitten tasked with stopping the inventor of a powerful weapon.
