In 2004, Brad Pitt played Achilles in "Troy" based on Homer's "The Iliad," now, the actor is set to star in "The Odyssey," the Greek poet's other Trojan War masterpiece.
It will be produced under the Warner Bros. banner and directed by George Miller (still attached to direct WB's "Justice League).
These are all good, until I found out that Miller and cohorts are planning to, are you ready for this? TO SET THE FILM INTO THE FUTURE!!!! IN OUTER SPACE!!!
What's up with that?
Homer's "The Odyssey" to go where no man has gone before?
I want to say Miller and company are nuts, but the director has a pretty good resume (the "Mad Max" movies, "Babe," "Happy Feet") so I'm reserving my judgment.

As we told you back in June, there were some loud talks about a fourth "Bourne" film.
Now, it's confirmed! According to Variety, Universal is moving ahead with its fourth installment of "The Bourne Identity" series with George Nolfi set to write the script.
But here's the catch:
The new film won't be based on a Robert Ludlum title, but rather an original story
The good news? Director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon are set to return. The bad news? Nothing really, just make sure the story is as intriguing as any of the Ludlum novels.

Oliver Stone is known as a controversial director. From his revisionist take on “JFK” to his glorification of mass murderers in “Natural Born Killers,” Stone showcased his burning passion that many deemed unacceptable. Stone might have listened to his detractors because his new film “W,” while well-directed, is saddled without a point.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you might have missed the hype surrounding “W” even before it was made! The film is supposed to be an incendiary look at the presidency of George Walker Bush to be released a few weeks before the election to sway voters. But “W” is not going to change your opinion of the man or his political party, whether you’re leaning towards the left or the right. Read More...
