Right now, Edgar Wright is still working on his new project that is going to be a review of The Running Man. Other movies like Scott Pilgrim's director and he director of the movie are still approached and will be giving Sydney Sweeney the girl as a star in the remake of the Barbarella film.

He has also been very busy. Yes, it is true that he hardly even sits down on the director's chair as his last film "Last Night in Soho" was made in 2021. Arguably, Wright was mainly busy with piloting the last year's smash hit Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, and he is also planning on filming a remake of The Running Man with Glen Powell playing the lead role.

Funny enough, he may be ready to move swiftly on another remake with Powell as his co-star in "Anyone But You." In February 2020, it was previously reported that Sydney Sweeney will be the one who is going to take on the Barbarella role in this remake. Once, Wright hinted to the staff at Deadline that he has been in discussions with the studio to direct the project.

Edgar is now the director of both The Running Man and Barbarella remakes, and he will have to set similar sights on them yet who can meet the actress. Sydney Sweeney has been signed up for this remake, known for a while now, and Wright, according to Deadline, is in negotiation with Powell to direct the film.

Whilst Wright is involved in an adaption of The Running Man, another adaption of Barbarella is likely to be further off in the future and Sweeney is busy with her projects too. On the other hand, it was also reported that the scriptwriters of the Jane Goldman and Honey Ross film are also in the talks to write the screenplay.

The screenwriter of the movie has already taken on many excellent and NAMED film rites like X-men, Kick-ass, Kingsman. So, it seems like that she can be a rightful addition to the Barbarella film back to Wright if she is on board.

Francois Barbarella in 1968 was the original movie that came out; it was actually a long runner interpretation of a well-known French comic series. In Barbarella, who was portrayed by Jane Fonda from Grace and Frankie, is a space adventuress who is sent by the president of the Earth to bring Durand Durand back from the ambrosial planet, and yes, it is not easy to chew this phrase.

Despite its cult status in modern society, it was unnoticed in its time, with the exception of the UK. This change was particularly recognized after a while, but as for our part, a restyling would bring it a longer life-span.
