Brett Ratner’s HERCULES Starring Dwayne Johnson Set for August 8, 2014 Release

     January 16, 2013


Paramount Pictures has announced that director Brett Ratner’s Hercules will hit theaters on August 8, 2014.  The film is an adaptation of Steve Moore’s graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, which paints the popular character with a darker tone.  Dwayne Johnson is set in the title role as “a mercenary who turned his back on the gods following the loss of his family, ‘finding solace only in battle.’”  Currently the only other film slated for release in August of 2014 at the moment is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which opens on August 1st.  With a firm release date set, production on the film should get underway later this year.

    Regardless of who the director ends up being that will direct it, a movie about Hercules and Dwayne Johnson playing the title role. That sounds totally awesome! Can’t wait for it !

      Haha I was thinking the same thing. The synopsis sounds exactly like God of War.

    I find the choice of Brat Ratner disturbing but The Rock playing Hercules does sound pretty fucking awesome. Hopefully it’s decent.

    Ratner? pfff that hack

    Ha! I knew before I read the comments here that the Uber-Hack Ratner would be trashed for this. The guy has no conviction, no soul, no purpose from what I can discern, save for getting a fat paycheck. I agree, hire someone else.
