The actress, who wowed film fans in 1968 playing sex-starved space explorer BARBARELLA, hasn't appeared on the big screen since 1990 movie STANLEY + Iris.
But the 65-year-old is reportedly "deep in talks" with Vanilla Sky director Crowe about starring in his next project.
A source tells American gossip site THE SCOOP, "In the past, Jane has said she's not interested in returning to acting.
"So she's trying to keep this project hush-hush in case it doesn't happen.
"She was making movies for 30 years. She's really eager for something to work out. If this doesn't, something else will."06/05/2003 17:23
