In the news this morning:
Hollywood's Warner Bros. studio has hired Jonathan Liebesman to direct a movie inspired by Homer's epic Greek poem The Odyssey. . . .Wars? No, war. His kingdom? No, his oikos. An invading force? No, young aristocrats seeking to marry Penelope.
Odysseus is about what happens when the king of Ithaca returns home after years of fighting the Trojan Wars and discovers his kingdom is occupied by an invading force, the entertainment industry trade newspaper [Variety] noted.
The article notes that Liebesman is the director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006).
O, ye gods.
