Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson posted a look at the Helmet of Hercules from the set of the film. This version of Hercules will be directed by Brett Ratner and is based on the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars.” The ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. The film opens on July 25th, 2014 and stars Johnson, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Aksel Hennie, Reece Ritchie and Tobias Santelmann.
“Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend… Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.”
