Dwayne Johnson has locked in yet another movie to his packed schedule of films. Currently filming Fast and the Furious 6, Johnson has five movies waiting in the wings in pre-production, and today, Deadline reports that Johnson has signed on to play Hercules.
The film will be a co-production between Paramount Pictures and MGM and will be directed by Bret Ratner. Ratner will also serve as co-producer on the action film that is to be adapted from Radical Studios' graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars.
Production is slated for early 2013, so we should probably expect this film to hit theaters in early 2014 or perhaps even summer 2014, depending on what kind of buzz the film generates.

Brett Ratner, Dwayne Johnson
Was so excited reading this article but when I stumbled upon the name Bret Ratner, my excitement was instantly destroyed!
Isn't he suppose to have a match at the Royal Rumble next January. He better not take the belt and run with it. But if CM Punk still has the belt, I would not mind. The Rock has been missed from the WWE but I think he is doing a great job with the acting. He is one of the better wrestler actors.
YES, that's great news for the famous WWE legend-Star and Actor Dwayne Johnson: he certainly has the strength, intellect power-wit, and talent to portray the iconic HERCULES. I think the very handsome & talented legendary/HERCULES Actor KevIn Sorbo would be proud of. Mr. Johnson would be spectucalar!!
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
