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.

TOP 5: TIFF 2014, Dwayne Johnson Cast in Upcoming SHAZAM Film, BIG HERO 6, Fall 2014 Horror Preview, Creepy as Hell CUB Trailer

Sep 6 2014 10:28am CDT | Source: Collider

This week's Labor Day holiday afforded me the opportunity to check out a matinee screening of writer/director Richard Linklater's Boyhood. I consider myself a sucker for coming-of-age stories and, as such, I went into the movie expecting to like it. I didn't expect to leave the theater feeling as if I'd just watched the greatest coming-of-age film ever made. From beginning to end, Boyhood feels important. Not "important" in that it demands to be taken seriousl ...

"Shazam" NOT A Part Of The DC Movie Universe

Sep 3 2014 6:40pm CDT | Source: Dark Horizons

So much for a fully inter-connected DC Cinematic Universe. With New Line Cinema set to produce the upcoming film adaptation of the DC comics title "Shazam," rather than Warner Bros. Pictures, it probably shouldn't be as surprising as it is to hear the news that "Shazam" will NOT tie into the larger cinematic universe in which "Man of Steel," "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ...
