Sandra Bullock has been confirmed to star in a new Netflix Original movie.

Titled Reborn, the film is an adaptation of the Mark Millar and Greg Capullo comic, which sees an elderly woman reborn into a fantasy world called Adystria. 

Director of The Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKay, is on board to helm the project, with Millar himself involved in the scripting process. 

Last year, Netflix picked up the entire “Millarworld” line of comics, with this being the first project to stem from that acquisition. 

Bullock has previously worked with Netflix on the horror film Bird Box, which has been successful for the service thanks to some crafty viral marketing. 

Reborn is not the first comic book adaptation Netflix has tackled, with The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina being based on a graphic novel. 

Mark Millar’s works have been adapted into a number of films, most notably the Kick-Ass and Kingsman movies, as well as 2008 film Wanted.

Whilst there’s no release date for Reborn yet, it is expected to hit Netflix later in the year.
