The hot young director of Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn, currently has his name attached to a slew of projects at the moment, including reboots of Logan's Run and Maniac Cop. How he's going to make so many films and a TV series of Barbarella has yet to be seen.
The De Laurentiis family were trying to get Barbarella remade as a movie before Dino passed away, but are still keen for a new version. The latest news is that it will be a TV series...

So the BARBARELLA Blu-ray is scheduled for release in the USA on July 3rd. But disappointingly the only extra is going to be the trailer, same as the DVD release - at least it'll be in high definition. The feature audio is mono, making this pretty-pretty much a 'bare bones' release. What I'm still hoping for is a decent high-definition remastering to make the film look the best it ever has!

Not much else to say than that at this stage. Paramount Studios have announced a July 3rd, 2012 release date for BARBARELLA (1968) on Blu-ray in the USA. Here's an example in a news release.
No cover art or details of extras, if any. A commentary track from Jane Fonda herself would be the best news.
Any further news about this exciting release will of course be posted here and tweeted on twitter under @Barbarella1968 which I hasten to remind you is an unofficial fan-based account dedicated to the movie.
