Yep, we have another Hercules! Say hi to Kellan Lutz, who is set to star as well-known hero in Renny Harlin‘s upcoming Hercules 3D! Man, do we really need two high-profile Hercules movies at this moment? I have no idea, but it looks that it’s all about Dwayne Johnson (who will star in Brett Ratner‘s version of the whole thing) and Lutz. Let the fight begin!
Anyway, let us first inform you that Renny Harlin is set to direct the $70 million epic from a script he co-wrote with Sean Hood and Giulio Steve.
Not much is known about the story, except that Hercules 3D will have at its center a love story between the son of Zeus and the mortal princess of Crete, who was promised to his older brother despite her love for Hercules.
As for Lutz and his involvement in the whole thing, it looks that director Harlin is more than excited. Here’s what he had to say in an interview with THR:
It takes more than a good physique to portray the most legendary, mythological personality in history — and Kellan has exactly that, personality. He’s not afraid to explore the strengths and vulnerabilities of the character, and he impressed me with his passion and heart.
The plan is to begin shooting in May in Bulgaria.
Stay tuned for more!
