Two different Hercules movies are set to be released in 2014. There’s Hercules The Thracian Wars starring Dwayne Johnson, and there’s Hercules 3D starring Kellan Lutz. Hercules 3D is directed by Renny Harlin (who helmed Die Hard 2 and Cliffhanger), and will of course be in 3D.
For those who don’t know Kellan Lutz, he played the role of the vampire Emmett Cullen in the
Twilight movie franchise, he also played the role of Poseidon in Tarsem Singh’s Immortals, and more recently, he joined the cast of Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables 3.
A few pictures of Hercules 3D below:
“Myths are that During Amphitryon’s absence, Alcmene (Hercule’s mother, played by Roxanne McKee) became pregnant by Zeus, who disguised himself as Amphitryon , when he visited her; she then became pregnant again by her real husband upon his return. Of these unions were born twin boys, of whom Iphicles (Liam Garrigan) was the son of Amphitryon, Hercules (Kellan Lutz) the son of Zeus.
There’s a love story between the son of Zeus and the mortal princess of Crete (Gaia Weiss), who was promised to Iphicles despite her love for Hercules.”
And two teaser posters:
The film should hit theaters sometime in March 2014.
Do you think Kellan Lutz’s Hercules will overshadow Dwayne Johnson’s Hercules (which is set to open in theaters in July 2014)?
