Director Nicolas Winding Refn’s TV series adaptation of Barbarella just scored a couple of talented scribes to bring the project to fruition.  Deadline reports that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who penned five James Bond movies including Skyfall and Casino Royale, have been tapped to write the script for the TV series iteration of the famous character.  The show is an adaptation of the 1968 sci-fi movie of the same name starring Jane Fonda, and Refn is currently working with producer Martha De Laurentis on the project.  The Drive director will take the helm once the script and casting is completed, but no firm timetable is given for when we should expect Barbarella on the small screen.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the original in the meantime.
