Apple TV+ is currently working on a series reboot of the 1991 romantic drama film, with Barbra Streisand returning to direct the project.

Based on Pat Conroy's 1986 novel, "Prince of Tides," follows a man that falls in love with his twin sister's psychiatrist. As the story progresses he learns that many of his sister's issues — as well as his own — stem from traumatic events in his childhood.

Conroy is also a co-writer of this Apple TV+ series, alongside Becky Johnson. The series is set to be directed by Streisand, who both directed and starred in the original film.

There has yet to be any casting decisions for the series, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.

The 1991 film adaptation was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

The series will join recently-renewed shows on the service, "Slow Horses," "Tehran," and "Pachinko."
