What? Who knew 2014 would be the year of Hercules? After the Kellan Lutz led “Legend of Hercules” flopped back in January, Paramount and MGM Pictures are going to try to their hand in getting a Hercules franchise to happen. This one is based on the graphic novel, “Herecules: The Thracian Wars” in which Hercules has finished his twelve labors and is now put to the test when the King of Thrace seeks his help in defeating a tyrannical warlord.
Who? Hollywood’s butt of many jokes Brett Ratner is directing this epic, but the interest comes in the star power involved. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gets to realize his dream of playing Hercules, and he’ll be surrounded by Ian McShane, John Hurt, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, and Irina Shayk.
When and Where? The film will muscle its way into theaters nationwide on July 25th.
