Dwayne Johnson is back posting photos of himself on the set of Hercules. First, we saw his Hercules costume and set, then that stand-alone shot of the Hercules helmet and now we’ve got a Johnson social media post featuring Johnson being filmed on set by director Brett Ratner. This is the first we’ve seen of the Tower Heist director wielding his camera while his god-inhabiting star does his thing as the iconic Hercules.
Hercules lands on July 25, 2014 and features a surprisingly long-haired Johnson as the legendary hero. The film also stars Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Ian McShane and is based on the graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars.
We’ve also got more information on the storyline for Hercules. It seems our hero is haunted by something awful he did in his past that has him living the simple life as a mercenary. Hercules is traveling through ancient Greece righting wrongs. But, it isn’t until he is asked by the ruler of Thrace to bring down a warlord that Hercules finds his inner strength that made him the hero to so many in the first place.
