High-Res Images: Rose McGowan as Red Sonja

It's just like being at Comic-Con...

Can’t quite picture Rose McGowan as the flame-haired barbarian swordswoman Red Sonja? We’ve got the first look at the sexy teaser poster and character art unveiled yesterday at Comic-Con! Images after the jump.

When Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan abandoned plans to remake Jane Fonda‘s space vehicle Barbarella, they merely turned their attentions to another redhead vixen: Red Sonja. While 1985’s film adaptation starring Brigitte Nielsen played (and bombed) as a chick version of Conan the Barbarian, the 2009 version to be produced by Rodriguez with McGowan in the title role is shaping up to be much closer to the Red Sonja seen in comics, more specifically as published in the past several years by Dynamite Entertainment. Take a look and see for yourself!

The official synopsis, courtesy of Nu Image/Millenium Films:

In her return we find Red Sonja, a young girl risen from the ashes of tragedy to become the most feared woman warrior of all time. The mythical red-head blindly seeks vengeance on those who destroyed her family. In her path of destruction she discovers a larger purpose for her unearthly powers: to save all Hyrkania from the villainous Kulan Gath.

Red Sonja is slated for 2009 and will be directed by Douglas Aarniokoski (Highlander: Endgame).
