Anne Hathaway “Attached” to Play BARBARELLA?

Anne Hathaway is attached to star in the remake of Barbarella.  Er… “attached.”  Consider this a rumor for now, since all we know is based on this tweet from Pajiba:

“A. Hathaway latest “attached” to Barbarella. Project currently is without a director.”

Normally I’d assume the quotation marks are a sign of precise language, but given the struggles of this remake to reach the screen, the punctuation could be a bit more cynical in nature.  The project was first attempted back in 2007 by Robert Rodriguez, with Rose McGowan in the starring role.  Last we checked (admittedly, over a year ago), Robert Luketic (Killers) was on board to direct from a script by Joe Gazzam.  If Pajiba’s tweet is to be believed, Luketic is no longer on the project.

Hit the jump for a synopsis of the 1968 Jane Fonda film, based on the Jean-Claude Forest comic strip.

A voluptuous outer space agent travels to another galaxy in search of a missing inventor in this science fiction send-up. Barbarella (Jane Fonda), an interstellar representative of the united Earth government in the 41st century, is dispatched to locate scientist Durand Durand, whose positronic ray, if not recovered, could signal the end of humanity. Outfitted in an array of stunning Star Trek/Bond girl outfits and cruising around in a plush, psychedelic spaceship, Barbarella travels to the Tau Seti system and promptly crash-lands. [AMC]
