Amber is the New Red?

I feel like this project idea has been tossing around for years: "Red Sonja."

I vaguely recall Rose McGowan up for the role (makes sense) and then some other whispers and then ... nothing more.

But she's back, and now it appears, with almost certainty, Amber Heard is the new Red Sonja.

Here's the news via ComingSoon:

"Nu Image and Millennium Films' Red Sonja appears to be back on track with Simon West ('Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,' 'The Mechanic') at the helm and an eye already given to the casting of Amber Heard (who next appears in Drive Angry) in the lead.

"'Amber is the new Red Sonja,' producer Avi Lerner told Empire today, 'but she doesn't know it yet!'

"The catch there is that, while Heard is eyed for the role, negotiations have, apparently, not begun. As such, the role sounds like it is Heard's to lose.

"The character of Red Sonja, a fiery-haired warrioress in a chainmail bikini, seeks vengeance on those who destroyed her family."
