Deadline is reporting that Mark Millar is teaming up with Batman artist Greg Capullo for a new Millarworld series entitled Reborn, which will run for six issues and follows “Bonnie Black, an 80-year-old woman who is afraid to die, but then when she passes she’s shocked to find there is a world beyond our own.”
It’s not Heaven. It’s not Hell. It’s as real and hard as where we live now, but filled with the most amazing fantasy landscapes, jaw-dropping creatures and a battle raging between good and evil. The people she loved in this world — her father and her childhood dog — but oddly, not her husband who had passed over 14 years before. So she sets out to find him. She realizes that she has been reborn as a 25-year-old woman with a sword in her hand and gun of her hip” and embarks on an adventure as she searches for the lost love of her life.
Millar also teased a possible movie adaptation, stating that: “The idea is always to create the project and then find the right producer for it. We have an idea of who would be good for this one. It must be someone who will understand the story and is passionate about bringing our vision to the screen.”
Reborn will get underway in October.
