The 1997 horror plans to hit the screen again but this time in an “all-new and all-modern” reimagining. Evan Daugherty, notable for his work on Snow White and the Huntsman, has been hired to write the script.

While many details about the new film are still in the dark, Daugherty has been very adamant about how this is not a remake, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.

“…the studio is hoping to take a Meg-style approach to the concept,” sources reported. The Meg was the 2018 killer shark movie that profited half a billion dollars. “The studio is aiming to take what was a simple and relatively cheap programmer with a B-movie concept and even rise it in scope and budget,” sources went onto say.

The original Anaconda was a box office successes, profiting $136.8 million. The cult hit went onto launch a franchise and numerous sequels. The Hollywood reported stated, “Insiders say the title has proved to be one of the most profitable in Sony’s library.”
