Re: Red Sonja getting a remake!

It's a shame it's a bunch of hacks producing this movie because if they had the clout to get her Charlize Theron would be amazing for it. You don't need somebody who looks the part 100%, anybody can look like anything that's the magic of film, what you need is a real action hero. Who happens to be p...

Re: Red Sonja getting a remake!

Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good? :) I am surprised that the producer of 2011's utter failure Conan The Barbarian is on that list of producers, since the whole reason there wasn't a Red Sonja movie with Rose McGowan was because the Conan film failed. Maybe it's for the best because I can't...
