Development continues on the new "Barbarella" television series that landed at Amazon Studios a few years back, with a script written by writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade of "Skyfall" fame. Plus take a look at Dynamite Entertainment's "Barbarella" #4:
"Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn directed the pilot 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 '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.

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