Jason went to space and now Homer is going, no not Homer mpson.
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.
