Star's bid for Xena film


CURVY Xena actress Lucy Lawless wants to make a movie version of the cult TV show.

She told I think a movie would be great, and I'd love to do it. I've been wanting to do it for years.

"But nobody can agree who owns the rights, and it's a big fat pain in the ass."

The sexy New Zealander starred in the fantasy show, which was created by her husband Rob Tapert, who also produced the long-running programme.

He is hoping to buy the rights for the show from bosses at Universal so he can make a new film.
