Just because I’m on the wrong side on the continent, does not mean I can still report on San Diego COmicCon related stuff. For example, while Con attendees were sitting in a hot, stuffy and cramped presentation room listening to director Robert Rodriguez discuss how he will be producing a new film version of Robert E. Howard’s classic swordswoman character Red Sonja, I was sitting in air-conditioned comfort looking at the teaser poster for the movie that MTV had just posted.
The film will star Rose McGowan in the title role and be directed by Douglas Aarniokoski.
If the poster is any indication, it looks as if the film might have a stylized muted pallet similar to Rodriguez’s SIn City. And is it just me or does it look like McGowan could stand to eat a sandwich or two?
Well, at least in this poster, she’s eating something…
