Unproduced screenplays exist in permanent limbo. Read when first written by perhaps a dozen executives upon whose whims its fate depends, (and perhaps by the author's sympathetic spouse), the rejected script now gathers dust on a shelf until the requirements of space demand that the paper upon which it is printed be recycled, consigning forever the words thereon to some cosmic nether region.
The script might have been good, bad, great or mediocre, but either way, it all gets tossed into oblivion.
I am extremely proud of the screenplay I wrote of Homer's ODYSSEY, in which I tried hard to be faithful to the original. Unwilling to let it languish and then disappear into the elephant graveyard of unproduced scripts, I offer it here for your entertainment.
