‘Anaconda’ Reboot in the Works at Sony With ‘Divergent’ Writer https://t.co/mRH2koquKX— Variety (@Variety) January 24, 2020
Sony Pictures is in early development of a reboot of the “Anaconda” franchise, hiring “Divergent” writer Evan Daugherty to write the project.
So far, Sony does not have any actors or a director attached.
Sony released the original “Anaconda” in 1997 as a horror thriller starring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight, Eric Stoltz and Owen Wilson. Directed by Luis Llosa, the film centered on a documentary crew searching for a lost tribe in the Amazon. Along the way, they have to deal with a murderous snake hunter hunting a monstrous serpent.
The 1997 film led to a 2004 sequel and three TV films.
