    Variety reports Bond script veteran team Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (amongst others involved in the scripts for ‘The World Is Not Enough’, ‘Casino Royale’ and most recently ‘Skyfall’) are set to pen the scripts for Nicolas Refn’s upcoming ‘Barbarella’ TV series. The project is based on a French comic book character invented by Jean-Claude Forest which in turn inspired Roger Vadim’s 1968 cult sci-fi film ‘Barbarella’ with Jane Fonda in the lead.
