Has Robert Rodriguez Picked His Barbarella?

Rose McGowan, Queen of the Galaxy?

The Robert Rodriguez remake of Barbarella won’t be out for awhile, but its starring role is perfect for all kinds of nonsensical speculation, which is why we’ve been feeding you rumors about who might be stepping into Jane Fonda‘s old go-go boots on a semi-regular basis. First it was Kate Beckinsale (which the actress was quick to deny). Then it was Halle Berry. But if today’s rumor is on point, Rodriguez is actually looking closer to home to fill the role.

According to a report at JoBlo, our new Barbarella will be none other than Grindhouse star Rose McGowan. Given that McGowan is Rodriguez’ girlfriend, and has demonstrated the prerequisite va-va-voomishness in previous projects, her attachment to the project would make a certain amount of sense; in fact, as JoBlo points out, plenty of people have suggested this very thing. Now, according to the site’s source, Rodriguez is getting ready to begin production — and has already shot some test footage with McGowan.

Even if said footage has actually been shot, it doesn’t mean McGowan has been given the part. But hey, it doesn’t mean she hasn’t, either.
