"Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn continues developing an episodic TV series adapting creator Jean-Claude Forest's erotic sci-
fi comic strip "Barbarella".
"We are just writing it still," said Refn.
"I kind of went back to the original comic, and really began to close my eyes and fantasize about women in outer space and it looked pretty good."
'Barbarella' is a young woman who travels from planet to planet and has numerous adventures, often involving sex. The aliens she meets often seduce her, and she also experiments with a 'machine excessive' or 'orgasmotron'.
The original comic book version of 'Barbarella' was modeled on French actress Brigitte Bardot.
Barbarella will be produced and distributed by Gaumont International Télévision.
