Kellan Lutz to Lead HERCULES 3D

Though director Brett Ratner and star Dwayne Johnson are gearing up to start production on their own take on Hercules later this year, the duo is poised to have some competition at the box office by way of director Renny Harlin’s (Die Hard 2, Deep Blue Sea) Hercules 3D.  Harlin’s film has now found its star, as Heat Vision reports that Twilight actor Kellan Lutz is set in the titular role.  Harlin previously described his take on Hercules as “not a comic book, cartoony fantasy thing,” and said it’s more in the vein of Gladiator.  The central story concerns a love affair between Hercules and the mortal princess of Crete, who was promised to his older brother despite her love for the demigod.

The $70 million budgeted Nu Image/Millenium pic is expected to begin production this May in Bulgaria in a race to get it into theaters next March, which would be way ahead of Ratner’s Hercules as that film opens next August.
