is the latest actress to be in line for the role of sci-fi heroine Barbarella, according to that ever churning rumour mill.
The remake was only announced weeks ago, but already Halle Berry
, Drew Barrymore
and Lindsay Lohan
have been speculated as contenders.
The Daily Express reports that Kate Beckinsale is the current favourite for the role. The tabloid says that “the feeling is that Kate has just the right combination of beauty, humour and acting talent for the part”.
Beckinsale’s previous action experience includes the 'Underworld' movies, and donning a dodgy East European accent for 'Van Helsing'.
Whichever actress gets the part, I just hope
they don’t forget to include Jane Fonda’s nude scene from original Barbarella
Here are a few pictures of Jane Fonda nude
from original Barbarella movie.
