Warner Bros wants to take on a new version of Homer’s epic Greek poem, The Odyssey – but set it in space. The studio has hired newcomer James DiLapo to write the script, based on his pitch of an idea Terry Dougas of 1821 Pictures (Machete Kills).
DiLapo wrote Devils At Play, a script which won the Nicholl Fellowship and was on the 2012 Black List of the most liked unproduced scripts according to studio executives.
