After Madame Web, Sydney Sweeney will continue her career in comics thanks to the remake of a cult film. We explain that to you!

In 1968, the director Roger Vadim adapted the French comic strip to the cinema Barbarella with a sex symbol of the time, Jane Fonda. As kitsch as it is eccentric, the film owes its success not only to the plasticity of its actress, but also to its unique blend of science fiction and eroticism. ” Barbarella is a free, wild, independent girl, explained the creator of the characterJean-Claude Forest, in an interview in 1968. She is not a suffragette, nor a policeman. She remains very feminine and has the privilege of being able to contradict herself on occasion. It is not a vamp, but an anti-vamp. Besides, I hate pin-ups. For me, Barbarella is a type of woman who has always existed. Contrary to what is said, it is absolutely not scandalous. »

But in fact, Barbarella, What is it about ? Set in the year 4000, the film follows the adventures of the eponymous heroine to whom the President of Earth assigns a special mission: to find the scientist Durand-Durand (not to be confused with the homonymous music group) before he won’t sell his invention, the ultimate weapon, to an enemy planet.

Sweeney has just joined Sony’s Spider-Man Universe via the spin-off Madame Webin theaters February 14, 2024. No official release date has been announced for Barbarella.
