Warner Bros. has plans to develop an adaptation of Homer's Greek epic The Odyssey that will be set in space. The studio has hired writer James DiLapo to provide the screenplay.

The ancient Greek poet and storyteller's epic centers on King Odysseus, who after returning from the Trojan War, finds suitors lined up to claim his throne. The story is a sequel to The Illiad, which Wolfgang Petersen adapted into Troy in 2004.

The idea to take it into space was an idea brought to the table by 1821 Pictures' Terry Dougas and Paris Kasidokostas Latsis. Brad Pitt was once in talks to star, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.

No production schedule has been released.
