Web rumors are proved false once again. According to MTV Movies Blog, Rose McGowan told the site she is still going to star in the remake of Barbarella. Rumors had flown that New Line Cinema wanted a bigger name for the role, but McGowan maintained that was all talk.
"[The news that I was out] was really irritating because I know all the people over there and obviously it wasn't true. It was very malicious and there was no proof," McGowan said of the rumors. "Oftentimes these things have basis in truth but this didn't. I have contracts to prove it."
She also added that the flick is moving forward in pre-production as well.
"Half of the sets have been built. The costumes are done," the actress confessed, adding with a laugh that she's "even got my spaceships. I've got part of a spaceship built for me!"
The only thing apparently standing in the way of this film being made, is casting everyone else and the possibility of a SAG strike.
"[Barbarella] wouldn't be able to be finished before June which is when the next strike might happen," McGowan said of delays in the face of a possible SAG strike. "It's a longer shoot."
We'll have more on this film as soon as we get more information.
