Millennium Media Reveals A First-Look Image At Red Sonja

Millennium Media has released a first look image at Red Sonja, which is currently in production and a movie that might actually leave development hell soon.


Red Sonja is a movie that has been hanging out in development hell for a long time now. After many years of trying to get the film off the ground, Millennium Media has finally gotten the production started, and it looks like this movie could see the light of day. In May of 2021, we got word that there was another change in the cast and crew as we got a new leading lady, and today Millennium decided to show off a first-look image of their leading lady, Matilda Lutz, as the titular character. We can't see much of the costume, which, in this writer's opinion, will be the most interesting aspect of this character when it comes to adaptation. Red Sonja is kind of the epitome of a sexualized female heroine, but that sort of thing isn't as accepted these days. So walking the line between being faithful to the source material and modernizing it will be a very interesting undertaking for the cast and crew.
