Xena: Warrior Princess reboot is in development but, this time it may not feature Lucy Lawless.
Nobody has worked harder at promoting a 'Xena: Warrior Princess' reboot than Xena herself, Lucy Lawless. But it turns out, if a reboot does happen, Lawless will probably not appear in the series.
According to Entertainment Weekly:
“I really couldn’t live that life,” she said of the stunt-heavy series. “I look back, I’ve got all sort of wear and tear from that lifestyle. That’s just what happens to human bodies when they get used a certain way a lot. I actually couldn’t do it. I’m 47, but there’s somebody great out there.”
But, Lucy Lawless revealed that she would be interested in playing Xena again, just in a smaller role, reports EW. “I would love to do a reboot getting Xena, Gabrielle (Renee O’Connor), Autolycus (Bruce Campbell) and Jox (Ted Raimi) back together, get that crew back together to solve some ridiculous problem. I’d love to do a TV movie or a movie, a limited thing.”
The NBC Xena reboot is in pre-development and is still seeking a writer.
