It looks like Robert E. Howard and Roy Thomas’ Red Sonja may finally be heading to the big screen…

Nu Image/Millennium Films have hired Christopher Cosmos to write a new script for the red-headed warrior from the creator of Conan.

The character was pretty popular in the 1970s thanks to the Marvel comics and at one time Rose MacGowan was tipped to star in the movie with Robert Rodriquez in the director’s seat.

However, at this stage there’s no word on a director or star in the new imagining of the character.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
