In early 2014, it’s Kellan Lutz who’s been Hercules, but come summer we’ve got another take on the legend, with Dwayne Johnson taking on the role and Brett Ratner directing. Now USA Today has released a couple of stills from the movie, which show The Rock in action mode.
Is it just us, or does the shirtless one above look like it could have fallen out of a gay porn vid. You just need another guy stood behind him.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend…
‘Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.’
Joseph Fiennes, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Rebecca Ferguson, Aksel Hennie and John Hurt co-star. It’ll be in cinemas this July (and a trailer is promised soon).
