Robert Rodriguez To Direct Red Sonja

The USA Today is saying that Millennium Films have got Robert Rodriguez to bring Red Sonja back to the big screen with Rose McGowan to be involved in some way, I wonder who Red Sonja will be? David N. White was announced as the screenwriter so its not too sure if Robert Rodriguez will write or co write yet.

He also added that the Barbarella remake is delayed because of the writers strike and possible actors strike.

UPDATE: The full USA Today article has gone online and says Robert Rodriguez will not be sitting in the director chair for this one but will produce, Douglas Aarniokoski, whose been a long time collaborator of Rodriguez working often as assistant director will direct the film. Rodriguez had this to say:
"I was surprised when Rose brought me a script of Red Sonja that she liked, I found it very entertaining. Sonja was strong, smart, cunning — just about everything she'd have to be to survive."
