"...'Barbarella' may have narrowly averted a galactic war -- as only she could -- but she's still in need of a 'null-d regulator'. 


"Hitching a ride on a cargo transport seems like a no-brainer, but these great seas in the final frontier are rife with pirates. 


"Plus someone's about to learn first-hand the dangers of emotional intimacy!..."

"Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn is attached to direct. adapting creator Jean-Claude Forest's erotic sci-fi comic strip.


"I kind of went back to the original comic," said Refn "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 'orgasmatron'. 


The original comic book version of 'Barbarella' was modeled on French actress Brigitte Bardot.
