Millennium Media To Produce A New Red Sonja Movie.

Millennium Media is allegedly developing a reboot of the sword-and-sorcery ,Red Sonja. The project will be produced by Millennium’s Avi Lerner and Joe Gatta alongside Cinelou’s Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon. Deadline reports.

“We have been waiting for the right time for this remake,” said Lerner, “and with the success of Wonder Woman, the audience has spoken. They want female heroes.”

Millennium Media is looking to turn the reboot into a new franchise and already looking to hire a writer.





Created by Roy Thomas, Red Sonja first appeared in Marvel's Conan the Barbarian series (#23) in 1973. The character was based on Robert E. Howard's 'Red Sonya of Rogatino' from his 1934 short story "The Shadow of the Vulture". The character received a live-action adaptation in 1985 directed by Richard Fleischer. The film starred Brigitte Nielsen as the title character with Arnold Schwarzenegger in supporting role.

Dynamite Entertainment currently holds the rights and publishes its own Red Sonja comics.
