‘Baby Driver’ & Cornetto trilogy filmmaker Edgar Wright is currently in talks to take the helm on the remake of ‘Barbarella.’

Also in negotiations to pen the script are Jane Goldman and Honey Ross.

Starring Sydney Sweeney, the story is adapted from French writer and illustrator Jean-Claude Forest’s comic series, the original 1968 ‘Barbarella’ starred Jane Fonda as the titular space-traveling heroine. The film did not perform well at the box office initially, but over the years, it has gained a cult following, with Barbarella being recognized as one of Fonda’s most iconic on-screen portrayals.
