Arrow’s Greg Berlanti aiming to bring The Infinite Horizon to the screen?

May 7th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Homer’s Odyssey is truly one of the most important stories every written. The tale a man’s journey to get home to his wife is a story that has infiltrated every aspect of our popular culture.

One interesting adaptation of the story was the Image Comics’ The Infinite Horizon. Set in the not-too-distant future, this six issue series focuses on a group of soldiers, led by a man known as The Captain, attempting to get home after being stranded in the Middle East.

To get back, the soldiers will have to cross half the globe and endure deadly encounters with many enemies including the Cyclops and the Sirens… but first he will have to survive the final hours of the war.

A script is currently being developed by the writer of Hercules, Ryan Condall, and is being produced by Greg Berlanti. Berlanti has a good deal of experience working with comic properties, functioning as the producer of both Arrow and The Flash.

Overall, it is still too early to tell how this movie will turn out. However, I am always open to a reinterpretation of a classic story. This, in combination with the creative team, is enough for me to keep an eye on this project.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
