Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Offers Up A Glimpse Of His Transformation Into HERCULES
Following the announcement yesterday that shooting of Brett Ratner's Hercules has begun, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has Tweeted a tantalising glimpse of his transformation into the titular character at the hands of an Academy Award nominated team.
Based on the graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, the Brett Ratner helmed film is a fresh take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. For that reason, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's appearance as the titular character is also set to be pretty "grounded" and he has offered up a first look at his transformation via his Twitter account.
Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend. Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.
