Rose McGowan Insists Red Sonja Isn’t Dead, Filming Next Year

Red Sonja Movie PosterI gotta admit, as much as I don’t see Rose McGowan as Red Sonja, the fact that she seems completely gung-ho about making the movie happen come hell or high water sort of makes me want to see it. Surely, if the lead actress is this excited about a movie, it couldn’t be all bad — right? In any case, back in August McGowan tweeted that the movie was delayed, referencing “real life”, but didn’t really say what that meant. Now we know: she had injured herself, enough that it required surgery which is scheduled for later this year.

Says McGowan:

“I need one more arm surgery from nerve damage so I’m supposed to have that the beginning of December so if you see me anywhere I’ll be hobbling around with a cast. It’ll be very pretty. We’re hoping to start filming again in maybe a year.”

The reality is that the chances of a “Red Sonja” movie actually happening probably depends on the success of Marcus Nispel’s remake of “Conan”. Once that movie scores, you can easily advertise “Red Sonja” as a follow-up, and even bring that movie’s new Conan into “Sonja” as a cross-over event.

And come on, who would think seeing a live-version of THIS is a bad thing?

Seriously, stop staring. What am I, a piece of meat to you? Pfft. Men.

    I like Rose, but Red Sonja she is not. Too tiny. Too petite. Who would be a good fit? I have no idea.

      Rebecca Romijn would be a good Red Sonja.
