Lucy Lawless Debunks ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ Reboot Rumours


Lucy Lawless

We were all so excited when it was reported a Xena: Warrior Princess reboot was in the works. Sadly, the star of the original series, Lucy Lawless, has since debunked the rumours so it doesn’t look like we’ll see everyone’s favourite 90s female superhero (Ok, except Buffy) back on our screens anytime soon.

Chakrams At The Ready! Who Should Play Xena In The Rumoured TV Re-Boot?

So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?

Lucy Lawless

In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.

'Xena: Warrior Princess' Reboot Is In The Works, Will Lucy Lawless Return?


Lucy Lawless Sam Raimi

The 1990s cult television series, Xena: Warrior Princess, may be back on our screens fairly soon. A reboot is reportedly in the works as NBC and NBC Universal are already preparing for a new series. The reboot is in the very early stages, reports suggest, and a search for a writer is ongoing. It's uncertain if the show's original star, New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless, will be returning to the show in her role as Xena or if a new actress will start Xena's adventures all over again for a new audience.

Lucy Lawless Confirmed for Marvel's 'Agents of SHIELD' at Comic-Con


Lucy Lawless Nick Blood Reed Diamond

We were expecting some Agents of SHIELD casting news from San Diego Comic Con and Marvel didn't disappoint, announcing three new actors for season two on Saturday. Most notably, they confirmed the worst kept secret in TV - that Lucy Lawless will be joining the show.

Agents of SHIELDAgents of SHIELD was a big hit for ABC

The actress will play Isabelle Hartley, a long-time SHIELD veteran who's tough and known to brandish a knife. As Slash Film notes, Hartley doesn't appear to have previously appeared in Marvel comics and her name is not in the Marvel comics database. In other words - she's a new character.

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Fell In Love On Set of "Northern Lights," But At 40, What's Happened To His Career?

When Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian fell in love on the set of Northern Lights, things were already looking a little bleak for the American actor. Here was a guy with the looks of a genuine Hollywood leading star - a guy who had served his time on U.S. television (Sunset Beach), like many A-listers before him, George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, etc. So why has Cibrian - who turned 40 last week - lost his way in the tangled world of Hollywood?

In 2006, Cibrian joined the cast of Fox show Vanished midway through the series. The show focused on the disappearance of the wife of a Georgia senator, which is revealed as being part of a wider conspiracy. The family of the missing woman, a pair of FBI agents and a journalist are drawn into the ever-evolving mystery - sounds alright doesn't it? Well, it wasn't. And it was cancelled after nine of the thirteen episodes. Yep, that means Fox deemed it wasn't even worth revealing where the wife of the Georgian senator ended up.

'Xena' Star Lucy Lawless Happy After Receiving Sentence For Trespassing During Environmental Protest


Lucy Lawless

Lucy Lawless, the star of Xena, Warrior Princess has been sentenced today (February 7) for illegally boarding the Noble Discoverer ship to protest drilling in the Arctic.

The actress got away relatively easy though, not having to serve any jail time, and with all of the publicity now attracted to her cause, it may have even been worth it. Each of the protesters, who boarded the ship, has been sentenced to 120 hours of community service, in addition to paying $651.44 in reparations to the Port of Taranaki, where they boarded the ship. Not a bad deal, considering all the media coverage the case has been getting.

According to the Washington Post, Lawless is very happy with the result herself, saying: “I consider it a great victory that the court has struck down the reparation demand from Shell, which I think was absolutely ludicrous.”

Video - Lucy Lawless Wears Bright Flower In Her Hair - W.E. New York Premiere Arrivals Part 2


Ewan McGregor was invited to the New York premiere of W.E., Madonna's directorial debut. He was followed shortly afterwards by one of the film's stars, Oscar Isaac, who plays Evgeni in the film. Lucy Lawless (Spartacus: Blood and Sand; Xena: Warrior Princess; Bedtime Stories) wore a bright green dress with a pink flower in her hair and looked very happy.

Madonna had been hoping to land an Oscar nomination for her period drama and sure enough, the film has received a nomination for Best Costume, going up against Hugo; Jane Eyre; Anonymous and The Artist

Bedtime Stories Review


OK
After dozens of movies, Adam Sandler remains hard to figure out. Most of Sandler's films slavishly follow the mold of most film comedies of the last decade or so: a somewhat funny male star (Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, Adam Sandler) is dropped into an unfunny premise with a lot of gross-out scenes and poop jokes to make up for the lack of laughs.

But the other part of Sandler's "oeuvre" consists of movies like Spanglish and Punch-Drunk Love -- odd hybrids of broad humor and quirk -- and toned-down, frothy mainstream comedies like Click and Bedtime Stories. It would be unfair to accuse Sandler of selling out his artistic vision in these films -- not only because Little Nicky wasn't art, but because the non-manic goofiness of Bedtime Stories may be closer to the real Sandler. And with some script consulting help, someday the real Sandler might make a really good film. Bedtime Stories isn't it, but at least it's mostly aimed in the right direction.

Eurotrip Review


OK
Who would've thought, in this dreary month of studio-dumped product, that true joy could come in the form of Vinnie Jones and a busload of football hooligans barreling down a French highway in the wrong lane with Vinnie screaming, "Piss off! Drive on the right side of the road!" Well, me neither, but nonetheless Eurotrip manages to be that oddly rare quantity these days: the actually enjoyable stupid comedy.

Starring a bunch of nobodies, leavened with a few clever star cameos, and written and directed by guys you've never heard of, Eurotrip wastes no time with the setup and getting its young stars to Europe. Upon graduating from high school, Scotty (Scott Mechlowicz) gets dumped by his girlfriend (Smallville's Kristen Kreuk), who then makes out with the lead singer of the band playing at the graduation party (an oddly-placed Matt Damon, lip-synching a song called "Scotty Doesn't Know"). Simultaneously, Scotty discovers that his German e-mail pen pal, whom he thought was a guy, is actually an extremely hot blonde. Unfortunately, drunk and despondent, he has just told her to stop writing (thinking it was a guy coming on to him). Spiritually devastated, Scotty decides to head across the Atlantic with his friends - requisite crazy guy Cooper (Jacob Pitts), nerd Jamie (Travis Wester), and Jamie's tomboy sister (Michelle Trachtenberg) - to seek the Aryan beauty of his dreams.
