Medusa is getting the superhero treatment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Greek mythological character is at the center of an action-adventure film that is currently in development over at Amazon Studios.

Aptly titled Medusa, the studio has tapped Nicole Kassell, who won an Emmy for her work directing episodes of HBO’s Watchmen, to direct. Nicole Perlman, known for her Marvel Studios work, penned the script that reimagines what audiences may know about everybody’s favorite Gorgon, who has snakes for hair and whose stare turns ordinary people into stone.

Plot details are being kept behind the mirror but the fantasy story sees Medusa, after running afoul of the ancient gods, setting out on an epic quest to save the world.
