Because the world could use a little more of Dwayne Johnson‘s exposed, rock (no pun intended) hard body, it has just been reported that Johnson has officially signed on to play Hercules in Brett Ratner‘s adaptation of Steve Moore‘s comic, The Thracian Wars.
In this particular story, Hercules is put in charge of a group of six mercenaries but after they’re sent to kill innocents, he revolts and tries usurp the king or some shit.
You know that South Park episode where all Stan hears is fart sounds? That’s kind of how this headline read to me. Don’t get me wrong, if there’s anyone who could fill the half man/half god’s battle-torn sandals, it’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Then again, since when has Hercules been black/samoan? Anyway, my facepalm moment came upon hearing this is a Brett Ratner joint. There were 3 Rush Hour movies and Brett directed them all! ‘Nuff said.
