This just came out of ComicCon, as did this news regarding the movie and various rumors that sprung up on the web over the last week.
* While he's stuck in a contract that won't allow him to officially direct the movie, Robert Rodriguez said that he's handing over the duties to one of his 2nd Unit men and will basically be co-directing the movie in all but name.
* Rose McGowan and Robert Rodriguez are still together and are still happy, despite rumors of a break-up shortly after the announcement she would be playing the role.
* There is no truth to the rumor that McGowan is out and Jessica Alba is in to play Sonja OR Barbarella in the remake of that comic movie Rodriguez is signed on to direct.
* The movie will reportedly stick closer to the Roy Thomas comics (no surprise, if he's still writing the script) and the movie will focus entirely on Sonja's origins.
