Greg Berlanti, who currently produces CW's superhero adaptations Arrow and The Flash, is bringing Gerry Duggan's graphic novel The Infinite Horizon to the big screen. Warner Bros. acquired the spec script written by Ryan Condal (Hercules), who will also serve as an executive producer. The original graphic novel is loosely based on Homer's epic poem The Odyssey.
The story centers on a soldier with no name, who ends up stranded on the other side of the world after a massive war that spanned several years finally comes to an end. The unnamed soldier embarks on his journey home, where he encounters shipwrecks and enemies such as the massive Cyclops and the seductive Sirens. The original graphic novel series ran from 2007 to 2011.
Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will serve as executive producers alongside Ryan Condal and Lawrence Grey, although the project doesn't have a director attached quite yet. Greg Berlanti is also producing Warner Bros.' upcoming Pan, and other movies in development such as Universal's Section 6 and Sony's Winter's Knight. Other projects that have been adapted from or inspired by Homer's The Odyssey include the 1954 adaptation Ulysses starring Kirk Douglas and Joel Coen and Ethan Coen's 2000 hit O Brother, Where Art Thou?.
