Writer Zak PennZak Penn, who has co-written nearly every superhero film of the last 5 years (X2, Elektra, Fantastic Four, X-Men: The Last Stand and The Incredible Hulk), is now working on a film adaptation of the story of the Argonauts, the classic Greek myth.

The Argonauts are the band of legendary seamen who, transported by their ship, the Argo, sailed alongside Jason as he ventured to find the Golden Fleece. This story has, in previous years, been adapted into Jason and the Argonauts, among several other books/ TV series/ films.

With Argonauts, Zak Penn will add that classic Zak Penn style he’s brought to projects such as… Well, is it just me or I this guy pretty hit and miss? You have Incredible Hulk and X2, but you also have Fantastic Four and Elektra. But, my gut tells me that it was studio involvement/ poor directing that informed his failures. It will be interesting to see how this one turns out, given who directs it/ releases it…

I hope to see another really solid Zak-Penn-scripted film in the near future.
