Dwayne Johnson to Play “Hercules”

Dwayne Johnson is in talks to play the titular Greek mythological hero “Hercules” in a new film about his exploits setup at MGM and Spyglass Entertainment reports The New York Daily News.

An adaptation of Steve Moore’s comic “Hercules: The Thracian Wars”, the story follows Hercules years after he carried out his twelve tasks and has turned his back on the Gods.

Now he and six friends have become mercenaries who’ve been hired by the King of Thrace to train his men into becoming an army every bit as ruthless as they are. Ryan Condal wrote the script while Brett Ratner is set to direct.
