If there’s one man in Hollywood who looks like he could take on some literally herculean tasks it’s Dwayne Johnson, and director Brett Ratner obviously thinks the same, as Johnson is now in talks for Ratner’s planned take on the legend of Hercules for MGM, accoridng to Variety.
The film will be based on Steve Moore graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian War, with Ryan Condol set to adapt the screenplay. The action finds Hercules roaming the earth, amassing a small group of mercenaries to fight other people’s wars for pay. He eventually finds himself defending Olympus from an army of the damned.
There is no shooting date for Hercules, and with Johnson already having a lot on his plate, it may not be able to go for a while yet.
