The Odyssey In Space is a thing that’s happening

Warner Bros commission sci-fi version of Homer’s Odyssey, Brad Pitt opts out

If you ever thought that Homer’s Odyssey would be more exciting with spaceships, Warner ┬áBros are on your wavelength.

Initially touted as a project for Brad Pitt back in 2008, the studio have hired James DiLapo to write the intergalactic reimagining according to Deadline, although Brad Pitt has gracefully bowed out. DiLapo has yet to have a script made but his first script made the 2012 Blacklist (which honours the best unmade screenplays) and won the Nicholl fellowship.
