Dwayne Johnson signs up for Hercules

Nov 8 2012, 2:05am CST | by

Dwayne Johnson is to play legendary Greek character Hercules in a new movie.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has officially signed up to play legendary strong-man Hercules.
The movie - to be directed by 'Tower Heist' filmmaker Brett Ratner - will be co-produced by Paramount and MGM, following months of negotiations.
It will be based on the graphic novel 'Hercules: The Thracian Wars', and has been adapted by Ryan Condal from Radical Studios.
Even Spiliotopoulos also contributed to the script, Deadline.com reports.
The comic tells the tale of Hercules working with the Thracian army to turn them into one of the most ruthless in the world.
Production is expected to take part in early 2013.
Dwayne is well known for taking on alpha-male roles, having previously taken part in the 'Fast & Furious' franchise and playing a character named Roadblock in the forthcoming 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'.
He has a number of big roles lined up, including a part in body-building movie 'Pain and Gain' and a rumoured part in 'Arabian Nights' playing Sinbad.

First Look: Trailer for Extended Cut of Dwayne Johnson's Hercules

Oct 29 2014 8:23pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Not being the biggest fan of director Brett Rattner, I found the following post-screening thought somewhat surprising: By Zeus, it could have been longer! MGM and Paramount was so kind to answer my prayers and released the extended cut of Hercules, trailered ...
