This word arrives by way of a British gossip column, so you know what to do with it, but here’s the dirt: Kate Beckinsale is apparently being considered for the lead role in Dino De Laurentiis‘ "Barbarella" remake. And you won’t hear any complaints from me.
Best known for kicking Lycan tail in leather in "Underworld" and "Underworld: Evolution," the British actress is also well-known for her work in "Van Helsing," "Pearl Harbor," "Serendipity," "The Aviator," and "Click." She’s also well-known for being stunningly hot, but that’s just one guy’s opinion.
Still no word on who’ll be directing the new "Barbarella," but we do know that "Casino Royale" screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are on adaptation duty. (They also wrote "Plunkett & MacLeane" and "Johnny English.") Just sayin’.
