First Look: Dwayne Johnson Shows Massive Set of Ratner's 'Hercules'
By way of Twitter, action star Dwayne Johnson has already shown off some photos from the production of MGM and Paramount Pictures new adaptation of Hercules. Now another photo comes straight from the set, this one highlighting the massive production design. Johnson tweeted, "The most amazing set I've ever stepped foot on. Honored to play this role." And in the photo below, you can see that this is one gigantic set, and it looks like this location was just found in the middle of a desert as opposed to being built by a crew. Here's hoping the film from Brett Ratner turns out to be as impressive as these sets seem to be. Look!
