SDCC 2013: The Wolverine panel: Hugh Jackman 05

A few months back, Lionsgate announced that Francis Lawrence would be directing an adaptation of Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey. Clearly impressed with what he has been able to do with The Hunger Games franchise, the studio is moving forward with the project, which has been slowly developing.

The Monkey King in Journey to the West

I’m sure there are many Geeks of Doom readers in the ether of these intertubes that are familiar with the Chinese epic legend, Journey to the West. And those who are not will be familiar with many of its contemporary adaptations such as the cult-classic series Monkey (also known as Monkey Magic) or tersely ripped off in the awful Dragonball Z series (I’m waiting for the hate mail on that comment).

Directed by Derek Kok and Stephen Chow, the film (depending on what sources you dig up) seems to have three working titles internationally: Journey to the West, A Chinese Odyssey, and Odyssey, and is set for release in February in Hong Kong.
