Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Hercules’ Film Set For August 2014 Release

Dwayne Johnson's 'Hercules' Film Set For August 2014 Release

Over two months ago (HERE) Courtney told you about this new Hercules film project starring Dwayne Johnson, to be directed by Brett Ratner. If you’ve been waiting to find out when it’s coming out – sit down and relax; You have some time.

It was confirmed today that the joint Paramount/MGM film will come out in theaters on August 8, 2014.

The film will be based on the Radical Studios graphic novel (how come no one calls them comic books anymore – “graphic novel” makes it sound like you’re reading Victor Hugo), Hercules: The Thracian Wars.

The film is reported to be a “revisionist take on the classic myth and is set in a world where the supernatural does not exist.”

No word yet, as to who will be starring along with Johnson in the film.
