Peter Berg Helms New Hercules Take

Director Peter Berg (“Hancock,” “The Rundown”) will produce and develop to direct “Hercules: The Thracian Wars” for Spyglass Entertainment, Film 44 and Radical Pictures says Variety.

The story is set years after Hercules, the legendary son of Zeus, completed his famous twelve tasks and is now the leader of a group of ancient mercenaries for hire.

The King of Thrace soon hires them to train his men to become the greatest army of all time and they come to realise how far they have fallen.

Ryan Condal will write the script, based on a five-issue comicbook series by Steve Moore that debuted in May.
