Brad Pitt is collaborating with director George Miller on an adaptation of one of the most famous Greek epic poems, Homer’s classic The Odyssey. However, the new adaptation comes with a twist: the ancient tale will be set in outer space.
Brad Pitt has previously starred in Troy, which was based on Homer’s ‘The Iliad’. The Odyssey is considered to be a sequel to The Iliad as it follows the ten years long journey of Greek hero Odysseus back home to Ithaca following the fall of Troy.
Brad Pitt might be playing the central character, but for now the only confirmation is his involvement as a producer through his Plan B production company.
