It seems Drew Barrymore has decided to remake the classic film 'Barbarella' with herself in the starring role.

...this Barbarella will not resemble Roger Vadim's 1968 movie, which starred Jane Fonda. Rather, it will be based on the original French comic books. "We don't have the rights to the original Barbarella," August said. "So not only is it not like the original Barbarella, it's deliberately and legally not very much like the original Barbarella..."

I'm glad it's going to be different... some things are better left alone. And having an evil villain named Duran Duran (from whom the band took its name) just won't fly anymore, I think.
