Dwayne Johnson has took to his Twitter account to post another behind-the-scenes look at ‘Hercules.’ “Honored to have these magnificent Friesians leading my chariot into battle daily. #MyRide #HERCULESMovie.” ’Hercules’ also stars Golden Globe-winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award-nominee John Hurt. Rounding out the main cast is Aksel Hennie, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, and Reece Ritchie. Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand) is directing the film.
Based on the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. The screenplay is by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos. Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. This 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.

To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.

The film is the second installment of a three-part series based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s 1937 novel ‘The Hobbit,’ beginning with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) and set to conclude with ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ (2014).

20th Century Fox has unveiled this latest poster for Brian Percival’s ‘The Book Thief.’ Opening on November 15th and based on the beloved bestselling book, ‘The Book Thief’ tells the inspirational story of a spirited and courageous young girl who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a new family in World War II Germany.

The Wrap are reporting that Paramount Pictures has acquired rights to ‘Sabotage,’ a non-fiction book proposal from author Neal Bascomb for Michael Bay to produce and develop as a potential directing vehicle. The full title of the proposal is ‘Sabotage: A Genius Scientist, His Band of Young Commandos, and the Mission to Kill Hitler’s Super Bomb.’ The story was actually made into a relatively obscure film 50 years ago, though Bascomb plans to tell the tale in greater depth as a gripping WWII action-thriller. Bascomb is the internationally bestselling author of ‘Hunting Eichmann,’ ‘The Perfect Mile,’ ‘Higher’ and ‘The New Cool,’ all of which have been optioned for film. He’s also a former journalist who worked as an editor at St. Martin’s Press before becoming a full-time author in 2000.
Set in 1942, the story follows “a brilliant scientist who flees the Gestapo to inform the Allies that the Nazis are secretly developing a nuclear program at an industrial fortress called Vermork deep in the mountainous expanse of Norway’s Telemark region. Knowing that Hitler gaining nuclear capabilities would be unthinkably catastrophic, the Allies assemble a fearless team of nine Norwegian refugee commandos to infiltrate the Nazi-occupied country. In an apparent suicide mission, this team must brave the arctic landscape and pull off an impossibly daring assault on Vermork, which sits perched on impenetrable, icy cliffs. With little more than parachutes, skis, tommy guns, and explosives, the team is the Allies’ only hope to halt Hitler’s nuclear ambitions, and their adventure is one of WWII most thrilling, action-packed tales.”
