It seems Brad Pitt just can’t stay away from those togas! The busy actor and father of six is teaming up with George Miller and Warner Bros. to bring Greek poet Homer’s The Odyssey to the silver screen – and setting it outer space.

 

The original story sees Homer’s hero, Odysseus, going off to fight in the Trojan war, and facing a lengthy journey home filled with obstacles and strange experiences.

 

Angelina Jolie’s main man is no stranger to Homer’s poems – he starred as Achilles in 2004’s Troy, adapted from The Iliad, which also dealt with the Trojan War. Hopes are that he will star in the new version of The Odyssey, with George Miller as his director.
