Rob Liefeld’s The Godyssey Set to Become Feature Film

Variety is reporting that Rob Liefeld’s comic series The Godyssey is in development to become a feature film with producers Todd Garner and Brooklyn Weaver. Garner and Weaver reportedly gained interest in the project when Liefeld tweeted about working on a relaunch of the series as his next big project.

The premise is decsribed as follows: Zeus, Buddha, Ra and Pangu, who must come together to fight a legion of fallen gods in an epic battle over mankind.

The original launch of The Godyssey in 1996 starred Image Comics angel Avengelyne and Glory trying to prevent the gods (including Jesus) from fighting to the death, but Liefeld confirmed on his Twitter account that neither Avengelyne, Glory, or Jesus would appear in the film version.
