Sony Pictures Animation has given the green light to a comedic remake of the classic Greek myth of the snake-haired Medusa, upon one only had to gaze at before being turned to stone. Directing the reboot will be reboot specialist Lauren Faust, who successfully rebooted the “My Little Pony” franchise and turned it into “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” series in 2010. Sony and Faust’s Medusa story will pick up with the young Medusa, who has angered the wrong goddess, resulting in her hair of snakes problem. Medusa then recruits a misfit band of creatures to try and help her get the curse reversed.
“Medusa” is expected to have a late 2016 or early 2017 release date.
