Warner Bros to Make Homer's "The Odyssey" Movie, Set In Space!

Posted: January 15th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Warner Bros to Make HomerSubmit Comment
Warner Bros has just hired James DiLapo (Devils At Play) to bring Homer's "The Odyssey" to the big screen. But instead of making a Greek epic, the new film will take place in space and in the future.

"The Odyssey" is Homer's follow-up to "The Illiad," which the studio turned into "Troy," which was directed by Wolfgang Petersen and starred Brad Pitt as Achilles. "The Odyssey" tracks the struggle of Odysseus to return from the Trojan War as men line up to marry his wife and live off his estate.

Producer Terry Dougas (Machete Kills) came up with the idea of setting the tale in space and had Pitt attached to the project at one point. The actor is no longer on board.

The endless inspiration from the Greek mythology and twisted by some lazy ass writer!

Forgot the name but I think they already did this with some Japanese cartoons in the 80's.

@Shane

I Yep, that's the one.

As for Pitt, I still have in mind Kirk Douglas as Ulysses.

Holy christ, are you serious? This news is about 4-5 years old. Maybe even longer. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman have been attached to it ever since the beginning with David Fincher attached to direct.

This is ridiculous, I almost can't believe this article got the go ahead. Shameful.

@sleepingshane: yep. Great cartoon. Love the into and have all the DVDs. Goes right up there with Mysterious Cities of Gold and The Sun Beneath the Sea.

Nevermind that Ulysses 31 was far more Lost in Space with Odyssey naming conventions than a true adaptation.

Anyway. I would have been more impressed with Hollywood if they had announced they were finding the balls to adapt James Joyce's Ulysses, but they'd probably hire Baz Luhrman to direct.

This reminds me of that movie Rob Lowe was talking about making in "Thank You for Smoking." I wonder if they'll cast Catherine Zeta-Jones?
