Ancient Memoir Becomes Anabasis

Sony Pictures is adapting a 2,400 year old memoir by a Greek soldier into the new feature “Anabasis” says Variety.

Xenophon was among 10,000 elite mercenaries who attacked the Persian Empire and who led them back through hostile terrain after their leader was betrayed and slain in 400 B.C.

Xenophon penned the ancient work right after his ordeal. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan will adapt it into a script.
