Dwayne Johnson will go to war for Brett Ratner as Hercules

Dwayne Johnson in ye olde epic outfit

And for my next trick, Dwayne Johnson graphic novel adaptation news story #2!

A little while ago we reported that Johnson was in talks to headline the adaptation of Steve Moore's 2008 graphic novel "Hercules: The Thracian Wars," and for those of you who wished it would come true today is your lucky day as that's just what Johnson will do.

I do so wish that this was being handled by someone with more distinct (and interesting) vision than Mr. Ratner, but perhaps Johnson's charisma and the ample pre-production time will manage to make up for it.  Or it won't.  Production is set to start this October in New Zealand. 

Extra Tidbit: Favorite ancient mythology movie that isn't GLADIATOR? My vote definitely goes to JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS.

I'm sorry but Rock needs to fire his agent. Just as I was starting to believe in him again he goes and does something like this. Come on, so he has muscle, that does not make him Hercules. He should of taken the kamahamaha role. Come on Rock, make better decisions already.

Anyone that pays to see this should be kicked in the nutsack (providing they are male). Awful awful idea.

At least it's not Michael Bay, Stephen Sommers, or Rob Cohen.

I'm not a hater

I mean, I actually love Dwayne Johnson (fuck it, THE ROCK) and I'm not on the [link] bandwagon either. I don't think he's a horrible director (nor do I think he's a great one) but I don't think he's as bad as many say. On top of that I absolutely LOVE greek mythology and Hercules...
HOWEVER this is a BAD fucking idea. I mean even for someone like me it just sounds fricken stupid. The Rock just =/= Hercules in any way shape or form. He's muscular yes but other than that I just find it damn near

He's muscular yes but other than that I just find it damn near impossible to picture him as Hercules. Prove me wrong, but damn this just seems stupid...

Let's look at the bright side

1. Dwayne Johnson isn't playing a fatherly figure in a Disney movie.
2. Brett Ratner, at least for now, forgot the idea of making a God of War movie.
