‘The Infinite Horizon’ Adaptation in the Works From ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’ Producer Greg Berlanti
Greg Berlanti has become quite the prolific producer since his Dawson’s Creek Days — in addition to producing Arrow and The Flash for The CW, he’s also behind the upcoming combined spinoff. In recent years he’s expanded to film, and his latest project finds Berlanti in his comic book comfort zone, with an adaptation of Gerry Duggan’s graphic novel series The Infinite Horizon.
Per Variety, Berlanti will produce a film adaptation of Duggan’s graphic novel, which is inspired by Homer’s The Odyssey. The story centers on a nameless soldier who finds himself stranded on the other side of the world when his years embroiled in battle finally come to an end. Here’s the official synopsis from Amazon:
The Soldier With No Name survived years of war only to be stranded halfway across the globe when the conflict ended. Getting home means going through the hell: escaping shipwrecks, beating a vicious opponent wearing a cycloptic combat armor, and resisting the siren’s call of a predatory society.
Ryan Condal, who penned the screenplay for Hercules, wrote the script for the upcoming adaptation and will co-executive produce alongside Berlanti. In addition to his television projects, Berlanti also produced 2011's Green Lantern, as well as Warner Bros.’ Pan, starring Hugh Jackman.
