Apparently it's chicks-in-chainmail week at The Dust Forms Words. As if the not-quite-Rodriguez adaptation of Red Sonja were not enough, we also have a big-screen Witchblade to look forward to.
It's to be directed by Michael Rymer (Battlestar Galactica). It looks like it'll focus on Sara Pezzini as the Witchblade-wielder but there seems to be no decision on who'll play her. Wikipedia hints at Megan Fox (Transformers), while other blogs are talking Angelina Jolie. I would have thought the question could be settled by reference to whoever it is appearing in the poster above but apparently not.
I'll be honest - I'm not a Witchblade fan to start with, and this has "unmitigated disaster" written all over it. My highest hopes are that it comes out at the same time as Red Sonja so that we can do some sort of back-to-back bad movie excursion.
