The upcoming Barbarella reboot is starting to take shape. The futuristic female mercenary character made famous by Jane Fonda in the 1968 film will be resurrected in a new film that is expected to be sexy but adventurous, and not campy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Joe Gazzam will write the new action-adventure for Legally Blonde and The Ugly Truth director Robert Luketic attached to helm for the classic film’s original producer Dino De Laurentiis and his wife Martha. A Barbarella update had been set up in 2007 at Universal with Robert Rodriguez directing from a script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade; the new incarnation is not set up at any studio yet.
