Rebecca Romijn, who co-stars in John McTiernan's update of the 1975 SF film Rollerball, told SCI Fi Wire that she has seen the final cut of the new film, and, contrary to rumors from a test screening, the film is not a disaster. On the other hand, she acknowledges that much of the film's violence fell to the cutting-room floor in order to secure a PG-13 rating. "It's really fun," said Romijn, who co-stars as the motorcycle-riding, Rollerball-playing, butt-kicking Aurora, opposite Chris Klein, LL Cool J and Jean Reno.

In a dark future where corporations have replaced countries, a sport named 'Rollerball' has become the world's greatest contest. It's the only surviving sport on the planet, with the teams trying to place a metallic ball in a scoring zone inside a circular arena. There's only two objectives for the Rollerball players: get as many points as you can and stay alive - because killing your opponents is an option.

Flouncing around in sexy beachwear is one thing, but, for some supermodels, taking off your top is quite another. "Rollerball" director John McTiernan learned that when he asked model-turned-actress Rebecca Romijn to appear topless on camera. "I freaked," she told Glamour magazine for their September issue. "So we hashed it out and shot it lit in silhouette." Still, aside from the perils of shooting sans clothes, Romijn much prefers the acting life to that of the mandated cheerfulness of modeling. "It was nice to walk around [the movie set] in a dark mood," she said.

John McTiernan's remake of "Rollerball" will roll into theaters later than expected. The movie was supposed to hit theaters on Aug. 17, but now is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2002, The Hollywood Reporter and Variety reported Monday. MGM's new president of theatrical marketing and distribution, Robert Levin, said delaying "Rollerball's" release will give him a chance to capitalize on what he described as the film's "great potential." "I want the time to set this up right," he said.

Rebecca Romijn felt as if she were living our one of those actor-specific nightmares: It was three weeks into filming the remake of Rollerball, in which she has a starring role, and her director, John McTierman, had hardly spoken to her. What she didn't know was that she was basically freaking McTierman out.
