Dwayne Johnson stars as the title character, based on the Radical Publishing graphic novels that take a different approach to the Greek god. Instead of being the son of Zeus, Hercules is a fierce mortal who is feared by many. When he leads his group of mercenaries on their latest mission, the job turns out to be much more complicated that previously imagined.
Brett Ratner is directing from a screenplay originally written by Ryan Condal (Paradise Lost), which is being polished by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Wanted 2). No production schedule was released at this time.
