It's Official: Dwayne Johnson Cast in Brett Ratner's "Hercules"

Posted: March 6th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
ItSubmit Comment
Brett Ratner has been attached to direct a new "Hercules" film for many years. Just recently came word that MGM was in talks with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to star as the title character.

Variety has now confirmed that Johnson has officially accepted the role. Filming is scheduled to begin this October in New Zealand, which will be after the actor completes Michael Bay's "Pain and Gain" and the sixth "Fast and the Furious" installment.

"Hercules" is based on Steve Moore's graphic novel "Hercules: The Thracian War," which was released in May 2008 by Radical Publishing. Ryan Condol is on board to write the script. Condol also wrote the script for "Paradise Lost," which was just killed by Warner Bros.

When it was confirmed that The Rock was going to play Hercules, it was great news for me until Brett Ratner came up as the director of Hercules.

This will be a box office bomb before it's even released.

Well at least, The Rock is returning fort Fast and Furious 6.

The Rock was awesome in Fast Five espeially the fight scene between him and Vin Diesel.

It was a great comeback to the action gerne.

Of course, again...
