Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the duo behind the screenplays for Casino Royale, Skyfall and more, have been tapped to pen Nicolas Winding Refn's TV series, "Barbarella." The pair may be best known for their work in the notoriously skingy James Bond series, but they’ve also written skinsational nude roles for Monet Mazur and Tuva Novotny in Stoned (2005).

He's best known for his depictions of tough guys like pugilistic prisoner "Charles Bronson" (Bronson, 2008) and man of few words The Driver (Drive, 2011), but now cult director and die-hard exploitation fan Nicholas Winding Refn is taking on a softer- and much more SKINtastic- subject.
Refn has signed on to adapt the swingin' 1968 sci-fi classic Barbarella for television in partnership with the French production company Gaumont (which is also currently producing two horror series: Eli Roth's Hemlock Grove and Bryan Fuller's Hannibal). The series will be produced by Martha De Laurentiis, whose late father Dino produced the movie Barbarella as well as skin classics from Mandingo (1975) to Body of Evidence (1993). We just hope that the series finds a home on a premium network like HBO or Showtime so we can get more groovy scenes like Jane Fonda shedding her spacesuit in the original.
Refn has said that he thinks Christina Hendricks would make a great Wonder Woman, so don't be surprised if her name comes up when it's time for casting. Personally, we'd like to see a blonde bombshell like Alice Eve in the role.
