While filming is now well underway, the cast of Brett Ratner's (X-Men: The Last Stand) continues to grow as Twilight actor Joe Anderson joins the cast of the movie as an ally to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's titular character. Check it out!
Variety reports that Twilight and The Grey actor Joe Anderson has joined the cast of Hercules as, "a marathon runner who brings Hercules news of enemy Rhesus' movement before the battle." The actor will next be seen opposite Daniel Radcliffe in Horns. The Brett Ratner helmed move - which ditches the well-known supernatural elements of the titular character - still has plenty of star power in the form of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, and John Hurt. The film is based on the Radical Studios graphic novel, Hercules: The Thracian Wars. President Barry Levine of Radical Studios is a producer and Executive VP Jesse Berger is an executive producer on the film. How do you guys feel about the way the cast is shaping up so far?
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.
