Aug 30, 2019

Exclusive: Mel Gibson is going to war (again).

The ‘Mad Max’ star is set to play Odysseus in a loose adaptation of the epic The Odyssey by Homer. Ann Peacock is penning the script with Jeremy Doner.

The film will see the king of Ithaca return home after disappearing 20 years ago in the Trojan War. Upon his arrival, he finds his kingdom in ruins and now ruled by Antinous, who has captured Odysseus’ wife and son. To get his family and kingdom back, Odysseus must fight for it.

Aside from ‘Mad Max’, Gibson is best known for directing and starring in ‘Braveheart’, which won Best Picture and Best Director at the 68th Academy Awards. He is currently filming Warner Bros’ ‘Waldo’ with Charlie Hunnam and Morena Baccarin.

Warner Bros is producing through Gianni Nurri for Hollywood Gang Pictures alongside Bernie Goldmann.
