Spartacus star Liam McIntyre has boarded director Renny Harlin's action adventure Hercules 3D.

Kellan Lutz will be starring as the Greek Demigod. Liam McIntyre will be portraying an army captain, who is Hercules' right hand man. The story will have the duo being sold into slavery by an evil king. Once captured they must fight side by side to achieve their freedom.

Paramount and MGM also have a different project in the works entitled Hercules: The Thracian Wars, with Dwayne Johnson starring and Brett Ratner directing.

Here is what director Renny Harlin said about the addition.

"He's infinitely entertaining to watch. I am lucky to have him play military commander, Sotiris, Hercules' best friend. Their relationship begins antagonistic and develops into a close bond, forged in battle."

Les Welden and Danny Lerner are producing. Production is scheduled to begin this May in Bulgaria.
