Near Myth: Stan Lee’s ‘Apollo Rising’ To Meld With ‘Eternal’ For Greek God Project

Two projects, very similar in subject matter about Greek Gods on Earth, are being melded together into one project at Sony. Apollo Rising — which is based on an original idea by the legendary comic book creator Stan Lee (Spider-Man) and developed between Lee and Avi Arad is merging with Eternal, which was a spec script from Red Queen author Victoria Aveyard purchased earlier this year.

Eternal is said to be a modern interpretation of the story about Greek Gods coming to Earth, complete with minotaurs. Apollo Rising is said to be about Greek Gods which have been living among humans on Earth in various hidden forms. The project will now be produced by Arad, Lee, Michael Costigan, Divergent producer Pouya Shabazian, Benderspink’s J.C. Spink and Jake Weiner.
