From the department of truly horrendous ideas: Brad Pitt will star in a "futuristic" version of The Odyssey, Homer's classic epic poem about Odysseus' struggle to get home. The story of Odysseus' struggles with the cyclops, Circe, and sirens will be translated to an outer-space setting. Pitt is making the film with Warner Bros., which also made Troy, his film based on Homer's Iliad. George Miller is in line to direct, which is the best reason yet to hope Miller's Justice League film comes out of development hell soon. [Variety]
