Lawless Wants To Star In Xena Movie

Actress LUCY LAWLESS is calling on movie bosses to adapt XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS for the big screen - because she fears fans will lose interest in the fantasy series if it's revived for TV.
The New Zealand-born star is best known for playing the warrior pin-up in the cult programme, which she is desperate to see brought back to life as a feature film.
She tells Out.com, "I love that character. I would do it if it was a movie. I doubt I would do it as a TV series. I can't see how you would make it fresh.
"By the time somebody does come up with that I'm just going to be too old. And I'm really sad about that. I feel like it's a completely wasted franchise."

Xena WP movie is way overdue. Never understood why the 'players' that could make it happen couldn't come to some agreement. It could stand up to any of the same type movie genre that's been out for awhile. It would be a money maker.

As a producer and Xena fan, I am THRILLED that Lucy Lawless is interested in a Xena movie. Good news is: I am working on an epic fantasy film, and while I cannot give the details, I CAN say at this moment, that I have a perfect and timely proposal for a Xena movie. I guarantee that Lucy Lawless and fans will be very happy. Uncertain news is: I hope my proposal letter will reach Lucy Lawless. Lea
