Dwayne Johnson, star of Paramount Pictures and MGM's Hercules admitted in an interview that possibly 50 crew members were terminated for attempting to get pictures of Johnson's Hercules while filming in Budapest.  Johnson stated, "I would say maybe close to 50 people were fired — crew members — all trying to sneak pictures.”  “There’s mandate and we all agreed on that.”

This could be the beginning of a Hollywood crackdown on those who seek to take advantage of their access to films and insider information.  In this day and age, with photos taken and immediately posted online, how will movie studios evolve to address leaks and preserve secrecy in filming?

Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labours and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and women never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.

A little harsh, but if they all agreed that they would keep things secret, then they really had it coming.

The movie isn't as important or anticipated as many other summer films.
Quite simply...who gives a shit about set pics leaked on this film?

Look at the size of the Rock's arm compared to that other guy. Insane!

It's part of there contract so it makes sense that if they break that contract they be terminated......however that being said.....Dwayne himself has posted a number of behind the scenes pictures.....why wasn't he fired lol

PEOPLE don't care about this movie, from the trailer it looks Dumb.
Luminus - 3/29/2014, 11:50 PM
@JayJayCAW: Because charisma trumps all. I just figured that one out and its disgusting.

Nuh-UH!!! *whistles nonchalantly*

The Rock looks like a monster. I hope he's a DC villain or Black Adam... would make Cavill look small, and stand next to Superman as a credible threat.

@JayJay

Are YOU going to take the camera away from him and tell him no? He'll eat you (and not in a good way)!

Dag the Rock is ripped. He wasn't this chiseled when he was in WWE. His muscle looked more natural the. Now he looks like a beast, i guess they really want to give off the impression that Hercules is badass...but with that said I really could care less to see this movie.

1400 years ago? Hercules was walking around in 600AD? Uh...I think you've missed the mark by at least 1000 years there, Hollywood!!!
