Berg is Herculean

07.23.2008

With the not-quite-dark-knight success of this summerís HANCOCK, Peter Berg has solidified himself as a big picture director. That being said, what better way to stay big than by tackling one of the biggest fictional(?) characters in the history of all that is civilized. And no, Marshmallow Man isnít getting his own feature, although thatís not such a bad idea. Iím talking about the almighty Hercules. Thatís right folks, Peter Bergís next is HERCULES: THE THRACIAN WARS, and itís based on a five-issue comicbook series by Steve Moore. Apparently Bergís Hercules wont merely be a fist-pounding, chest-thumping barbarian but rather a brooding, sensitive existentialist. Says producer Barry Levine:

What resonated for them was that this was character driven, about a character whoís more man than god, with conflicts and redemption.

It sounds like theyíre going to have to hire someone that can actually act to play this role. Um, sorry Kevin Sorbo.
Extra Tidbit: Berg is also set to direct and produce a new version of the Frank Herbert sci-fi novel "Dune" for Paramount
