Xena Reboot in the Works at NBC: Who Should Play the New Warrior Princess? -

Sharpen those chakrams, Xena fans, because the Warrior Princess is poised for a major comeback.   NBC and NBC Universal, along with original Xena executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi, are looking to revive the action-adventure icon, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The search is currently underway for a writer to pen a “modern reboot” of the series, which ran in syndication from 1995 to 2001. Though original star Lucy Lawless has yet to attach herself to the project — which is still in the extremely early stages of development — producers reportedly want her involved both behind the scenes and in front of the camera. I’ve been pitching [a two-hour movie], actually,” Lawless told reporters at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month. “The fans really do want that, and I’ve met some people who’ve crowdfunded some things, and I’m just like, ‘Why don’t we just do that?’ … It’s still about who owns the rights to Xena. But it would still be cool to do it again with Renée [O’Connor], me, Ted [Raimi] and Bruce. It’d be a fun little gig, but what that is, I don’t really know.” Along with this news comes a slew of important questions avid Xena fans will need answered: What role could Lawless have on camera, considering her character sacrificed her life in the series finale? Who would play the “new” warrior princess? And what exactly is a “modern reboot,” anyway? Are you excited for the Warrior Princess to make her triumphant return?   Read the full article on TVLine! p { text-align: justify; line-height:16px }

No Xena Movie?

Exclusive: XENA Movie Just Won't Happen, Says Creator Rob Tapert Posted on 21 April 2009 by Brent Hartinger, Editor Rob Tapert, the co-creator of televisions Xena: Warrior Princess, has given up hope that there will ever be a live-action feature film version of the classic show, at least not any time soon or starring series leads Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor. It's something that just won't happen,” Tapert told in an exclusive interview. “I don’t think it’s going to happen for Lucy and Renee. In twenty years or ten years, in some amount of years, like McGyver, like Charlie’s Angels, it [could] happen like that [with other actresses].” Rumors of a feature film adaptation of the series, which ran in syndication from 1995 to 2001, have circulated for years, and all the principles had indicated in interviews that they’d be eager to participate. “I thought for a heartbeat it would [get made],” Tapert said, “but at the end of the day, the rules of motion picture marketing, where they have to commit $25 million to open a movie, in this environment, the momentum you need to get a movie made isn’t there to get a Xena movie made.” One problem for a film version concerned the fact that NBC Universal Television Group controls the rights to the show, not Tapert or co-creators John Schulian or R.J. Stewart. Tapert’s pessimism stems from the rights question, which still hasn’t been resolved, and the lack of funding. “It’s a question of [rights and financing],” he says. “All of the above.” The show was canceled after a six-year run, but still enjoys a huge cult following, both online and at annual real-time conventions. Over the course of the show, the character of Xena returned from the dead many times; the warrior princess even died in the series finale. But now the character, at least as interpreted by actress Lucy Lawless, appears to be dead for good. If you think this news is crap like I do there is a sight were you can petiton for a xena movie.
