After they acquired legendary comic book writer Mark Millar's Millarworld, Netflix is now developing a movie adaptation of Millar and Greg Capullo's hit Image Comics series 'Reborn'. Produced by Sandra Bullock via Fortis Films and directed by Chris McKay ('The Lego Batman Movie'), this film is sure to be an amazing watch.

Here’s everything you need to know about the project:

Release Date

The movie is yet to begin production and with all the delays caused by the pandemic situation, it might be a while before 'Reborn' can make it to screen. MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) will be bringing you the release date for the film as and when it becomes available, so stay tuned.

Plot

'Reborn' follows the adventures of an 80-year-old woman who dies in a hospital and is (you guessed it) reborn as in a much younger body. She finds herself in a fantastical land. But it's not all rainbows and unicorns as an endless war between good and evil is raging across the world. Reunited with old friends and loved ones, the woman finds that her husband, who died before her, is nowhere to be found. With her late father and childhood dog at her side, she then sets out on an epic quest to find him.

Check out this summary from 'Reborn: Book One' on Goodreads, which collects the first six issues of the series: "Bonnie Black has no faith in an afterlife. Spending her last days in the stroke ward of a county hospital, she fears falling asleep in case she doesn't wake up. When a final stroke ends her life, Bonnie is reborn in Adystria--a sci-fi fantasy world that's locked in a raging battle between good and evil. She's twenty-five again, there's a sword in her hand and she's ready to fight. She meets her dad, Tom, and her childhood dog in Adystria, but there is no sign of Harry--her husband who was murdered over ten years before. With the help of her dad and loyal pet, Bonnie sets off on an epic quest to be reunited with the lost love of her life. But it's not just her family that have been waiting for Bonnie. Her arrival has been prophesied, and there's a tremendous evil lying in wait. An evil that will stop at nothing to destroy her. An evil that can only be sated with blood."

Casting announcements for the film haven't been made yet. However, Sandra Bullock is producing the film so we're holding our hopes that she might take up the lead role. Watch this space for more updates.
