A 9.30 report by Elle‘s Tracey Lomrantz that Robert Rodriguez will be directing real-life squeeze and Planet Terror star Rose McGowan in a remake of Barbarella is at least…what, four months old? But it reminds us that Rodriguez is an old hand at dressing his leading ladies in skimpy outfits and turning them into objects of lascivious attention (as he did with Salma Hayek in Desperado and From Dusk to Dawn). And it seems to once again confirm R.R.’s absolute opposition to making a film of any attempted soul or substance or delicacy for the rest of his life. He’s a thick-fingered genre-wallower.
