Kellan Lutz Nabs Title Role In HERCULES 3D

The Twilight actor will play the legendary Greek Demigod in Nu Image/Millennium's OTHER Hercules movie, which will go up against MGM's take with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Read on for details and quotes from director Renny Harlin..



We know MGM/Paramount are working on a "grounded" take on Hercules under Brett Ratner and starring The Rock, but now there's some movement on Renny Harlin's version, which at least sounds like it will be faithful to the original mythology. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kellen Lutz (Twilight, Immortals) has signed on to play the character in Millenium's Hercules 3D. The $70 million epic is aiming to shoot in May in Bulgaria. "It takes more than a good physique to portray the most legendary, mythological personality in history — and Kellan has exactly that, personality," Harlin tells THR. "He's not afraid to explore the strengths and vulnerabilities of the character, and he impressed me with his passion and heart." Specific plot details are unknown but apparently at its center will be "a love story between the son of Zeus and the mortal princess of Crete, who was promised to his older brother despite her love for Hercules."
