HEADHUNTERS Actor Joins The Rock In HERCULES
THR report that Aksel Hennie, star of the brilliant Norwegian thriller Headhunters, will be joining Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Brett Ratner's adaptation of the Radical Studios graphic novel. Read on for more details..
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Aksel Hennie will star in his first big studio movie alongside The Rock In Hercules, the MGM/Paramount co-produced, Bret Ratner directed adaptation of the graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars. Apparently Hennie will play a character called Tydeus, "a warrior devoted to Hercules who wields twin axes and is such a madman that he needs to be chained up at night when he sleeps". This version of the tale will strip away all of the supernatural elements of the mythology and reimagine Hercules as a mortal warrior with a "fearsome reputation", who leads a group of mercenaries on a mission where all is not what it appears. How exciting! The movie will be produced by Beau Flynn, Barry Levine and Ratner, and executive produced by Peter Berg, Sarah Aubrey and Jesse Berger.
