Brad Pitt has one of Homer's classics under his belt and will take on the other as well. According to Variety, Pitt has came aboard Warner Bros. loose adaptation of Homer's The Odyssey. Pitt starred Troy, in the loose adaptation of Homer's "The Illiad."
The film, however, will take Homer's tale and use it in a futuristic setting in outer space. While no screenwriter has been attached yet, WB hopes to have Pitt star in the film and George Miller direct.
Homer's original poem dealt with the aftermath of the Trojan War, with the noble warrior Odysseus and the trials and tribulations of his return home.
No production schedule has been released.
