hercules-the-thracian-wars-coverRelease date information comes via Box Office Mojo.  The shuffle for Hercules puts it one week after the opening of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past and the final installment of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: There and Back Again.  While it may steal a few viewers who will have seen each of those movies opening weekend, Hercules only has one week of screen time until Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, directed by James Gunn, opens on August 1st.

Ratner’s Hercules is based off Steve Moore and Admira Wijaya’s graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars and will be adapted by Ryan Condal.  Here’s a description of the source material (via Amazon):

Nearly 3,200 years ago, a tormented soul walked the Earth as neither man nor god: Hercules, powerful son of the god-king Zeus, and for this he received nothing but suffering. After 12 arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods, finding solace only in bloody battle. Over the years, he warmed to the company of six similar souls, bonded by their love of fighting and the presence of death never questioning where they go or who they fight, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to turn his men into the greatest army of all time, which means training them to be as bloodthirsty and ruthless as their own reputation. It is time for this band of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen and the narrow, perilous path to their own redemption.

Here’s the latest word on The Best Man Holiday:

Malcolm D. Lee writes, directs and produces THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY, the long-awaited next chapter to the film that ushered in a new era of comedy. Sean Daniel (The Mummy series) joins Lee to produce the film.
