From Book Riot:
Director Francis Lawerence, writer Peter Craig, and producer Nina Jacobson, who previously worked together on The Hunger Games films, have been hired by Lionsgate to work on a film adaption of Homer’s The Odyssey. The project is expected to begin production after promotion for Mockingjay Part 2 has finished.
I guess it's been a while since an Odyssey film has been made, and since just about every ninth grader in the country reads this story, it might be a good idea to update the film. Also, is it just me or does it somehow seem fitting that the same people who brought us The Hunger Games bring us The Odyssey?
What are your thoughts? Did you read this book in school? Did you enjoy it? Did you watch the old 90s Odyssey film? Would you be interested in seeing this adaptation?
