Rhona Mitra as Pez? Yancy Butler may be have been a fan favorite as New York Detective Sara Pezzini in "Witchblade" on TV five years ago, but the series was only moderately successful despite Yancy's health and drinking problems.
Which may be why the former Tomb Raider model is the one in talks to play the comic book warrior woman who wears a supernatural ancient gauntlet that transforms into a blade (while shredding her clothes off) before going into battle against evil.
During its brief run as a TV show, Witchblade, starring Yancy, became the most successful original series in TNT's history and ran from 2001 to 2002.
With this film and director Neil Marshall's thriller "Doomsday", Rhona could become a new star of cult movies in late 2007.
