Lucy Lawless Desperate to Star in 'Xena' Movie

January 26, 2010 (6:41 am) GMT
Best known for her Xena portrayal, Lucy Lawless hopes the warrior pin-up will be brought to the big screen, saying that she would love to reprise the role.

Actress is calling on movie bosses to adapt "Xena: Warrior Princess" for the big screen - because she fears fans will lose interest in the fantasy series if it's revived for TV. The New Zealand-born star is best known for playing the warrior pin-up in the cult program, which she is desperate to see brought back to life as a feature film.

She tells Out.com, "I love that character. I would do it if it was a movie. I doubt I would do it as a TV series. I can't see how you would make it fresh."

"By the time somebody does come up with that I'm just going to be too old. And I'm really sad about that. I feel like it's a completely wasted franchise."
