Nerds have been on the verge of bonerdom since the above Red Sonja poster was released at Comic-Con in 2008. The status of that project has bee unknown since then because Rose McGowan and Robert Rodriguez aren’t banging genitals together anymore. Today, news that the actress has been cast in the Conan remake may finally trumpet that project’s demise.
McGowan has signed on to play a half-woman/half-witch opposite Fake Lenny Kravitz in Marcus Nispel‘s remake. Does this mean that Red Sonja is officially D.O.A. or does her agent only hang out with geeks and this role will serve as a taste of things to come? As of right now, it’s too soon to tell if she will follow Brigitte Nielsen’s career path or what the status is of her sleeping with Lil Wayne in season 26 of "The Surreal Life." (Variety)
