Hugh Jackman To Star In Odyssey Adaptation



According to reports, actor Hugh Jackman is in talks for starring in an adaptation of Homer’s “The Odyssey.” The movie is all but a sure thing and reportedly, it will be given to the “Hunger Games” director and producer duo of Francis Lawrence and Nina Jacobson.
The movie is supposedly going to be written by Peter Craig. Even though there is no release date, the movie is definitely happening, and more likely than not it will be Jackman who will get the starring role.

“The Odyssey” epic was written by Homer in the 8th century B.C. and is considered to be one of the most important stories in classical literature. It tells the story of Odysseus trying to make it home to his wife after the fall of Troy and the trials and tribulations he goes through trying to get back home to Ithaca.
