Following the success of Netflix’s “Bird Box,” Sandra Bullock has signed on to star in a feature film adaptation of “Unforgiven,” based on a British three-part series that aired in 2009.

“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” director and writer Christopher McQuarrie wrote the script, and German filmmaker Nora Fingscheidt will direct. The show centers around a woman, imprisoned for a violent crime, who attempts to rebuild her life after being released from prison. She faces a society that refuses to let her move forward.

“Bird Box” was Bullock’s first collaboration with Netflix, and that project is currently in sequel development as a book. McQuarrie is working on the next two “Mission: Impossible” movies, and is developing Bill Clinton and James Patterson’s novel “The President Is Missing” for Showtime.
