‘Hercules’ Starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Gets August 2014 Release Date

Hercules gets August 8, 2014 release date Paramount Pictures has given Brett Ratner's upcoming graphic novel adaptation Hercules an August 8th, 2014 release date. The film is hitting theaters a week after Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy. Dwayne Johnson is starring as the title character. No other actors have been attached.

The film is based on a graphic novel written by Steve Moore titled Hercules: The Thracian Wars and is a more real world take on the mythological story. The writer also penned a sequel to the novel titled Hercules: The Knives Of Kush, which will likely turn into film if this first action project turns into a hit.

Brett Ratner is directing from a script by Ryan Condal. The director is producing with Beau Flynn and Barry Levine.

Production is scheduled to begin later this year.

Hercules was released July 25th, 2014.
