Brad Pitt linked to Homer’s epic “The Odyssey”

Brad Pitt as Achilles, Troy

Warner Bros are working on a movie adaptation of Homer‘s epic poem “The Odyssey” after turning Homer’s “The Iliad” into the 2004 film “Troy.” “The Iliad” was the basis for the 2004 film “Troy,” which was directed by Wolfgang Petersen and saw Brad Pitt played Achilles. “The Odyssey” follows on from “The Iliad” and tells of Odysseus’s exploits on his ten-year journey home from war – after he declines to become a god – to his wife Penelope and son Telemachus. Warner Bros has quietly set up “The Odyssey,” and the early hope is that Pitt will star and George Miller will direct, with Pitt’s Plan B producing. Their intention is to transfer “The Odyssey” to a futuristic setting in outer space. Pitt will next be seen in the David Fincher-directed “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and the Terrence Malick-directed “Tree of Life.” He just began shooting the Quentin Tarantino-directed “Inglourious Basterds.” George Miller remains attached to direct “Justice League.”

    -Long rich and now pushing 50 —we wonder if Brad Pitt will EVER show some REAL nerve and start speaking
    out about the fact that Hollywood is completely controlled by market favors from the most awesomely genocidal regime in history —across the Pacific?

    That’s 70 million folks! —murdered in ‘peacetime’!
    ABSOLUTE FACT —you can check it for yourself.

    Anyway, it’d be kinda’ nice if Brad and Angie would
    finally start talking about it —ya’ know what I mean?
