The 1970s cult flick is getting a streaming reboot.

According to a report from Deadline, Hulu is developing a new streaming series based on the 1974 film 'Foxy Brown.' The new show comes from MGM and executive producers DeVon Franklin and Tony Krantz.

Though full plot details have not been announced yet, the show will be a modern reimagining of the original movie, which followed the title character as she attempted to get revenge on the criminals who murdered her boyfriend. The series is being written by Malcolm Spellman ('Empire) and Ben Watkins ('Hand of God'). Meagan Good ('Think Like a Man,' 'Brick,' 'Saw V') is set to star as Foxy Brown, taking over the role that Pam Grier originated in the 1974 film. Likewise, Good will also serve as one of the show's producers.

Outside of 'Foxy Brown,' other upcoming Hulu series include 'The Handmaid's Tale' based on the novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood, and 'Future Man' from executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Matt Tolmach, and James Weaver. 

In addition, the streaming platform recently launched support for user profiles and Ultra HD streaming. With the new profile feature, each Hulu account can now add up to six specific profiles, offering a personalized experience for different members of the household. Meanwhile, Hulu's initial lineup of 4K streaming titles includes original series like 'Shut Eye,' 'Chance,' 'The Path,' and '11.22.63,' along with more than 20 James Bond movies, including 'Spectre,' 'Die Another Day,' and 'Golden Eye.' Hulu 4K streaming is currently supported through the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One S. More Ultra HD content and support for more devices will be added throughout 2017.

A current Hulu subscription starts at $8 per month with commercials or $12 per month for ad-free playback. A Hulu live streaming platform is also planned to launch in early 2017 with content expected from Turner Networks, Fox, ABC, ESPN, FX, and the Disney Channel.
