Lawless Wants Reunion

Xena: Warrior Princess star Lucy Lawless told SCI FI Wire that she hopes her next film project will reunite some of her old pals from the cast, including Bruce Campbell (Autolycus), Ted Raimi (Joxer) and Renee O'Connor (Gabrielle).

"Josh Becker came up with this really great storyline for a movie that we'd all love to do," Lawless said in an interview. "It's kind of a spoof, because that's the kind of people that we are, but we're all just busy on other projects at the moment." Becker wrote for the Xena series and also scripted Hercules in the Maze of the Minotaur and Alien Apocalypse for TV.

With a working title of Lost in Dino World, Lawless said the film project will be an SF comedy, but it will have no connection to their characters on Xena. "I remember laughing out loud, just howling with laughter, when I was reading the synopsis, and that was a good year ago," Lawless said. The only hold-up at the moment is coordinating all of their schedules.

"I certainly want to work with Bruce and Renée and Ted again," Lawless said. "The point being is that we would love to work together, but these things are harder to coalesce than people might think."

Lawless will next be seen on the Sept. 9 episode of SCI FI Channel's original series Battlestar Galactica. She will also appear in The Darkroom, a film in which she plays the mother of a boy who's haunted by visions of a terrible murder. Lawless describes it as "a cross between a Freddy Krueger movie and Psycho." Lawless is now in New Orleans filming the CBS TV movie Vampire Bats.
