Additional reinforcing the “Arcane” connection, “Penelope of Sparta” is being developed with screenwriter Amanda Overton, an government story editor for 9 episodes of the Emmy and Annie-winning Netflix collection.

With at present’s announcement, Combe instructed Selection, “We felt a strong desire to embark on an original project and to create a feature film specifically designed for the cinema, following the success of ‘Arcane.’ In an era where most projects are reboots or based on existing IPs, our challenge was to develop something original while staying on familiar ground for audiences. Thus, we decided to adapt one of the oldest ‘IPs’ in history – Homer’s “Odyssey” – a narrative identified to all.”

“This allows us to leverage Fortiche’s unique expertise and talent. Our new project delves into the untold story of Penelope, exploring who she was before the image we have of her today,” he continued. “It’s a passion project that combines our love for coming-of-age narratives and sci-fi elements.”

Aimed toward audiences 13 and older, the YA movie is a sci-fi coming-of-age story  Penelope, the heroine from Homer’s The Odyssey.

Fortiche’s synopsis sums up the movie’s narrative briefly: “For Penelope, high school isn’t a party; it’s war.”
