HERCULES: A Tale Of Two Wars (In Hollywood)
PLANET GRIFFIN, your favorite pirate blogcast, returns with a weekend tidbit in that desolate teenage wasteland known as Pop Culture. Within the next couple of days, DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON, will begin his crushing 14 week workout prep for the live adaptation of HERCULES: THE THRACIAN WARS, based on the comic of the same name by RADICAL PUBLISHING.
Directed by BRET RATNER with a whopping $110 million pricetag, the film is reported to be as 'a dark representation of the comic in tone and style' and more fitting to the comic, as well as another hit series recently concluded: SPARTACUS.
The irony of this last bit is not only is there a second HERCULES 3D feature filming at the same time of the above production, marking the grand return of director RENNY HARLIN, but the inclusion of Spartacus himself, LIAM McINTYRE, alongside KELLAN LUTZ, to add more kick to the cast!
Both films will collide Summer 2014; creating another 'who's better' scenario, much like OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN and WHITE HOUSE DOWN of this year's pre-summer season.
