First photos of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson as Hercules

2014-03-26 07:00
Cape Town – Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson shows off his rock hard body in the first photos of the new Hercules movie.

Johnson takes on the role of the legendary hero in the latest remake of Hercules. Based on Radical Comic’s Hercules by Steve Moore this version is a revisionist take on the classic myth.

It tells of Hercules working with the Thracian army to turn them into one of the most ruthless in the world.

The action film also stars Golden Globe winnner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award-nominee John Hurt.

'The Rock' shows off his impressive body in the first two pictures of him as the 'demi-god' Hercules.
