Sandra Bullock, star of The recently buzz worthy Netflix movie Bird Box, isn’t done with Netflix yet. She will be producing Reborn, the Mark Millar mini series for the streaming Network according to Deadline.com
The Lego Batman Movie filmmaker Chris McKay is to direct Millarworld comic book adaptation Reborn for Netflix, Sandra Bullock and It producer Vertigo Entertainment.
The sci-fi fantasy comic series by Mark Millar and Greg Capullo tells the story of an eighty year-old woman, Bonnie Black, who dies in a Manhattan hospital only to find herself reborn in the prime of life in the afterlife world of Adystria, a magical land of monsters and dragons where good and evil are waging an eternal war. There, she finds old friends and loved ones waiting, except the husband who died before her. Armed with a sword and partnered with her late father, she sets off through the battle-torn landscape on a quest to find out where he is.
Oscar-winner Bullock will produce, as will Roy Lee and Miri Yoon for Vertigo Entertainment. I’m hearing from sources that Gravity star Bullock could potentially lead cast in the movie, which is currently in development. Mark Millar and Greg Capullo will be executive producers. Co-producer will be Samantha Nisenboim.
Netflix and Bullock recently teamed up on Bird Box, which the streaming giant says been seen by more than 80M households, making it one of their biggest success stories.
