Tonight - Kate Beckinsale booted from Barbarella: "Kate Beckinsale is set to be dropped from the forthcoming 'Barbarella' remake.

The British actress - who had been the frontrunner to play the lead in the erotic sci-fi film - is devastated at learning movie bosses are now lining up 'Grindhouse' beauty Rose McGowan to play the sexy superhero.

A source said: 'It seemed Kate had got the part but nothing was signed and sealed. Now the word is she's going to lose out to Rose.'

Beckinsale, 35, reportedly had her heart set on playing the title character - originally portrayed by Jane Fonda in the 1968 cult classic - and can't believe the role is going to someone else."

A blatant case of age discrimination if I ever saw one!

Don't know if I'm the only one but I don't find Rose attractive at all. Thus, booting the drop-dead gorgeous Kate for Rose is a step down. Jane will still be the best Barbarella.
