Heard to play Red Sonja
The film has been in development for the past five years with directors like Robert Rodriguez and Brett Ratner attached to the project.
Shortly after Rodriguez was linked to the film, a poster of his girlfriend McGowan as Red Sonja hit the Internet, but she has since quit the project, as has the Planet Terror moviemaker.
Now, Con Air and The Mechanic director Simon West is in charge of the film and Heard will lead the cast, according to CinemaBlend.com.
