Dwayne Johnson Posts First Photos from the Set of MGM's 'Hercules'
Production is already underway on Hercules, MGM and Paramount Pictures' joint adaptation of Steve Moore's graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, with Dwayne Johnson starring as the mythical hero in an ensemble-action film with revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. Though we don't have any official stills from the Brett Ratner production, star Johnson has been given some freedom to take pictures from the set, and he's posted them on Twitter for fans to enjoy. The first few photos aren't very revealing, but we do get a glimpse at Johnson and more. Look!
Here are the set photos from Brett Ratner's Hercules from Dwayne Johnson's Twitter:
Hercules is directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand), written by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos, and based on Steve Moore's graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, Dwayne Johnson leads the film which also features Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Rufus Sewell (A Knight's Tale), Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love), Peter Mullan (War Horse), John Hurt (V for Vendetta) and also Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Aksel Hennie and Reece Ritchie. The film is now shooting in Budapest, Hungary, with a theatrical release planned for July 25th, 2014. Cool?

Love the Rock; hate the Ratner. Probably a rental for me.

I kinda wish they used Johnson as Bane in TDKR, with his voice dubbed over akin to Vader. This looks like straight to DVD with MGM in charge
