Red Sonja Remake

Red Sonja Getting Remake, Lands a New Writer

It looks like the red-headed warrior in the silver bikini is finally getting ready to make her comeback.

Robert E. Howard and comic writer Roy Thomas have been working on the project, which is in development at Nu Image/Millennium Films.

There isn’t much to go on yet, and there is still no director attached. The project certainly has been passed around a lot, though. Robert Rodriguez was previously developing the film, with the intention of having Rose McGowan play the lead role. Doug Aarniokoski was another writer-director that could have been stepped in.

Red Sonja was popularized back in the 1970s with the comics and was known as the “She-Devil with a Sword.”

Since the movie is just getting started it may be a while before we see Sonja hit theaters. It’s good to see Marvel kicking some ass and putting the Conan-like heroine on the forefront.

Here’s an old school, retro trailer for the hell of it as well! Enjoy!
