‘Hercules: The Thracian Wars’ Adds Antje Traue

Antje Traue joins the cast of Hercules: The Thracian Wars Filmmaker Brett Ratner took a page out of Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past playbook by announcing on Twitter that Antje Traue has joined the cast of Hercules: The Thracian Wars. That tweet has since been deleted, which likely means the director jumped the gun and announced the news too early.

No details have been released as to what character the actress is portraying. She joins a cast that already includes Dwayne Johnson as Hercules, Aksel Hennie as Tydeus, Rufus Sewell as Autolycus, and Ian McShane as Amphiarus. The story follows Hercules, the son of Zeus who turns his back on the Gods. He leads a team of mercenaries who will fight anyone's battle for them, provided the price is right. The plot thickens when their latest mission becomes more complicated than anyone could imagine.

Brett Ratner is directing from a screenplay by Ryan Condal (Paradise Lost), which was recently polished by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Wanted 2). It isn't known when production will begin.

Antje Traue will next be seen as Faora in this summer's superhero reboot Man of Steel, and later on this fall in the fantasy adaptation The Seventh Son.

Hercules was released July 25th, 2014.
