Actress Rena Riffel, who played the dim-witted dancer Penny Hope in the camp classic “Showgirls,” seems to be single handedly revitalizing interest in the film and turn it into a bona fide franchise.
Rena is creating her own YouTube movies as “Penny Hope” which include some of the insane dialogue from the film.
I’m not sure if she’s in on the joke or not, but you gotta love her for trying! I’m still thinking we could organize Goddesscon, a 3-day conference for fans of the film, in the same spirit of a Star Trek convention. But where to hold it? In Las Vegas of course! With a night out at the Cheetah and a show at the Stardust!
Now, over a decade later, I think everyone’s ready to embrace the insanity of the film and possibly create a sequel, or even a prequel to the movie. What would the film’s plot be?
