We’re so on board for this!
It seems as though 2015 is the year of the reboot, and NBC apparently wants in on the trend.
That’s because it was announced on Monday that the peacock network is looking to remake the classic fantasy/drama Xena: Warrior Princess for the modern age!
The Hercules spin-off starred Lucy Lawless as the titular hero from 1995-2001, and the reboot is currently in very early stages of development as executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi look for a writer to attach to the project.
NBC apparently wants Lucy to be involved with the series both on camera and behind the scenes, which shouldn’t be too hard seeing as she’s been part of the Universal family recently with her recurring role on Parks and Recreation.
The one downside? The studio wants its leading lady to be a mix of Lucy’s Xena with Jennifer Lawrence‘s Katniss Everdeen — so basically they just want a serialized Hunger Games… but still, we’ll take what we can get!
However, Lucy herself has commented on the news suggesting that the show is only a rumor, but we still have faith:
There isn’t too much other info about the reboot just yet — but this is definitely one Hollywood remake we can totally get behind!
Do U think this news is just too good to be true??
