A first official poster of Hercules, the upcoming action adventure movie directed by Brett Ratner and starring Dwayne Johnson in the titular role, has been unveiled:
“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.”
Dwayne Johnson is built like a rock, but his skin is a shade too dark to play a Greek hero. Anyway, never mind, am sure he will deliver a great performance.
There are also three new pictures:
Besides Dwayne Johnson, the cast also includes Joseph Fiennes, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Rebecca Ferguson, Aksel Hennie and John Hurt.
Expect a first trailer quite soon!
