According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand) might be making a live-action Hercules movie.

It seems that the director is in talks to possibly direct producer Avi Lerner's (The Expendables) "long-developed tale of the mythological god (Hercules to the Romans, Heracles to the Greeks)." Lerner has been working on this movie for over three years. Not much is known about this new version at present .

Aiding this project is the fact that the new incarnation of Clash of the Titans brought in almost half a billion dollars around the world.

The character of Hercules has been in many foreign films. Disney made an animated movie about the character in the 1990s. He hasn't been seen in a live-action form since the mid-1980s, when Lou Ferrigno played the character in a film aptly titled, Hercules.
