As for the movies, in 2004 for Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot) would make an adaption of Homer’s, ‘Illiad’ called, Troy (2004)… This adaption was a bit closer to Homer’s original vision as it was set in the Ancient Greek war against the City/State of, ‘Troy’ and followed one of the warriors that fought in that war by the name of, Achillies (played by: Brad Pitt)…. The Odyssey may have originally been intended to be a sequel but the new Warner Bros. adaption of the classic film is going to be out of this world… Literally!
