Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria) is the new Barbarella

Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria, The White Lotus) will star in a new adaptation of Barbarella.

Impossible to forget that before her, Jane Fonda had embodied in a first film adaptation (Barbarella, 1968) the famous free and sensual heroine of the French comic strip created in 1962 by Jean-Claude Forest (he had then taken Brigitte Hinny for model).

Mad scientist and absolute weapon

A comic strip that tells how in the year 4000, the astronaut Barbarella, then on vacation, is entrusted by the president of the Earth with a special mission: to find Durand-Durand, a scientist who disappeared a few years ago, inventor of the absolute weapon that he now wants to sell to an enemy planet.

At the moment, the film has no director or screenwriter. On the other hand, we know that it will be shot for Sony Pictures and that Sydney Sweeney will be the executive producer. Along with Madame Webb and The Registration, this is the third film project in which the actress is expected. Source: Deadline
