Variety reports that Hannibal Rising director, Peter Weber, will be directing an updated version of the 1968 Jane Fonda starring film, Barbarella.

Dino De Laurentiis, who produced Hannibal Rising, will also produce the remake which he describes as a "Female James Bond --in outer space".

No word when the film will go into production as De Laurentiis has three other films in the pipeline: The Last Legion, Virgin Territory and a as-yet-untitled underwater epic about a killer whale.
