Robert Rodriguez to Direct Girlfriend Rose McGowan in 'Red Sonja'

Fame Pictures

We all remember the fiasco that went down when Robert Rodriguez fell for his Grindhouse star Rose McGowan, and dumped his wife of 16 years, Elizabeth Avellán. Now, Robert and his "leading lady" are collaborating behind the camera once again on Red Sonja, a re-make of an '80s film starring bombshell Brigitte Neilson. The new Red Sonja will feature Rose as a mesh bikini clad heroine, a part she doesn't think she's quite built for. "When they first came to me with it, I thought it was funny," she told USA Today. "I do have a body made for sitting on a veranda with mint juleps and a parasol. I don't know why I always have to save the planet." Uh, nice touch of modesty there, Rose.

She wasn't the only one gushing, though. Said Robert, "Rose is a pistol. She's whip-smart, has attitude to burn, is sexy, extremely strong, yet has a vulnerable side that would surprise her closest friends. That description also fits Red Sonja." Could we add home-wrecker to that description? Just asking...
