I'm late to this game, after posts like Barbarella Saved! and Katherine Heigl: the new Barbarella? There is clearly a lot of speculation on this.
My question is, what is Robert Rodriguez's intention here? Is it a back-to-basics adaptation of the comic strip Barbarella by Jean-Claude Forest or merely a remake of Barbarella by Roger Vadim? Everyone seems to be starting from the position that it will be basically the latter, and, if that's the case, count me out of the speculation, as I have no interest, or even potential interest, in that movie.
