According to Variety Hancock director Peter Berg will produce and direct Hercules: The Thracian Wars. Ryan Condal will write the script, based on a five-issue comicbook series by Steve Moore that debuted in May. Producer Barry Levine said:
“What resonated for them was that this was character driven, about a character who’s more man than god, with conflicts and redemption.”
This should not be confused with greek epics Clash of the Titans, War of Gods, or the 300 prequel/sequel. Hercules also joins other movies currently in development such as He-Man, Conan and Thor.
It’s a good time to be a body builder on steroids in Hollywood!
