Renny Harlin Says HERCULES 3D Is "Somewhere Between Gladiator And Clash of the Titans"
With two upcoming films based on the iconic character known as Hercules, Empire got an interview with Hercules 3D director, Renny Harlin to see what he has to say about the film and its concept. Read on for more!
As many of you know, there are not one but two films coming out based on the legendary mythological character known as Hercules. Empire had a chance to get a one-on-one with the director of HERCULES 3D, Renny Harlin. You can view what was said below:
"We're somewhere between Gladiator and Clash Of The Titans"
"Ours is definitely based on the mythology of Hercules, but we don't have monsters and flying horses and things like that."
"Our story is the young Hercules, so I would say that the sequel will probably dive into the Labours. As you know, in the mythology Hercules ended up killing his wife and children, and as atonement he got the 12 Labours. So we definitely reference them as a future thing, but he doesn’t go through them because he’s just starting his journey."
"It's an origin story about how a young man comes to terms with learning he’s the son of Zeus", says Harlin, "and how he deals with the destiny that he has".
"It’s definitely a very different look at Hercules,"
"I really wanted to bring in all those mythological elements, so that people can Google the names of characters and places and learn more about them."
